The committee will be headed by the Director of Education (Schools) and will have additional director Education (Schools) and the deputy secretary in the Education department as the other two-members, a statement issued by the Education department said.
The committee will find out the facts and circumstances leading to the leak of the question papers. It will also probe whether there were any procedural lapses on the part of the COHSEM or any individual was involved in the question paper leak, the statement said.
It will also suggest preventive measures to avoid any such lapses in the near future.
The COHSEM on Wednesday cancelled the Class 11 final examination which commenced on February 17 after question papers of at least five subjects – Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology and Manipuri – were leaked.
