    According to the police, it is yet not clear if the peon had sold the papers to the scrap dealers under instructions from someone else.

    Speaking to ANI, Gopalganj SP, Rashid Zaman said,''They regularly buy books & other scraps from the college (SS Inter College from where answer sheets went missing). It is fine if they bought it for the same purpose, but we are investigating if they had any other intention.''

    The results were scheduled to be declared on 20 June but a bag containing 200 answer sheets kept post evaluation went missing from the school.
