Heeding to massive protests that scores of students have been holding in Delhi against an alleged exam scam brewing under the Short Service Commission (SSC), Home Minister Rajnath Singh declared today that his government has asked the CBI to probe all allegations.

Singh said the government has agreed to protesters’ demands by ordering a full CBI investigation into the matter. He appealed to students to call off protests following his assurances and let investigative agencies complete their probe.

Senior Congress leader and Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor also took to Twitter to congratulate students for their “victory” in making the government heed to their demands and requested them to stop their protests.

Tharoor said he had raised this issue with Union minister of state Jitendra Singh, who readily agreed to order a CBI investigation. The MP claimed that he had raised this issue with Singh in the Parliament and then even via calls and mail, and he had received a positive response in return.

The SSC “scam” relates to alleged instances of malpractices that were unearthed during examinations held on 17 February at an exam centre in Delhi. Students have alleged that some question papers were leaked before the exams and some candidates had indulged in cheating while writing their papers.
