Authorities have failed to prevent the leak of yet another SSC exam question paper.
Around 9:02am on Thursday, the question set for Islam and Moral Studies was circulating on Facebook and WhatsApp, nearly an hour before the exam was scheduled to start.
This is the fifth question paper to have been leaked this session, despite stringent measures taken by the authorities. Earlier, both Bangla Papers I and II and English Papers I and II were leaked prior to the exams.
Meanwhile, Tangail police have detained two teachers of a coaching centre from Bhuapur upazila on charges of leaking SSC question papers for the religious education exam.

Russel Parvez, 38, and Shahidul Islam, 28, were detained from the Bagabari and Beltola areas of the upazila, respectively, on Thursday morning. Both the teachers' mobile phones have been confiscated, as they were used to circulate the leaked question papers.
Bhuapur police station OC Abdus Salam Chowdhury said the leaked question paper, found to have been circulated on Facebook from the phones of Parvez and Shahidul, is identical to the one given to the SSC examinees who sat for on Thursday’s exam.
Police are in the process of taking legal action against the detainees.
