This year's SSC examination has seen an ongoing spate of question leak despite strict measures of the government.
Earlier on February 4, Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid declared Tk 5 lakh bounty for helping to catch those involved in question papers leak.
On February 12, the government banned usage of mobile phone within the 200 metres of any examination centre as part of preventing frequent leakage of question paper in the SSC exam. The order was to arrest anyone found with mobile in the area.
But nothing seems to work.
The question paper leak has drawn fierce criticisms and prompted a Jatiya Party lawmaker to demand in parliament the immediate resignation of Nahid.
The High Court on Thursday formed two committees -- one judicial and another administrative -- to find out those involved in the leak of question papers of public exams and make recommendations for preventing the leak.
