The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activists on Friday staged a protest outside the Pre-University Education (DPUE) building over the cancellation of the second-year chemistry re-examination. The question paper has been leaked for the second time.

The agitators were seen carrying placards and banners and raising slogans denouncing the PU department. The police also detained several agitators to prevent any untoward incident from occurring.

“We are angry at this. We prepare so hard for the exams,” said one of the protestors.

The Karnataka government had on Thursday suspended 40 officers and other staff members in the Pre-University Department after the chemistry paper of Class XII was leaked for the second time in 10 days.

According to reports, the re-examination will now be held on 12 April as the second leak led to protests by angry parents and teachers in Bengaluru and elsewhere in the state.
