According to the judgement, Rasheed and Vijayan had travelled to Car Nicobar on February 14 and met the principal of the GSSS school, Lapathy, P.
Krishnamaraju, at his residence where the question papers were photocopied. The matter came to light on March three when a local daily reported that the Physics paper, the examination of which was held on March one, had been leaked.
