Cheating in the high school exams continued in the eastern Indian state of Bihar on Saturday, with police having to fire in the air and carry out a baton charge to disperse people who were helping students to copy, said local media.
While nearly 100 people were arrested, Minister of State for Human Resource Development Upendra Kushwaha said the central government will seek a report from Bihar on the cheating.
No one was injured in police firing in Vaishali and Bhojpur districts of Bihar.
The development came just days after a photograph showing people climbing a school wall to fling answer sheets to students taking tests inside went viral and grabbed national and international headlines.
Police on Saturday fired in the air at an examination center in Vaishali's Hajipur area to disperse a large number of people helping students to copy, said Indo-Asian News Service.
The police action came a day after the Patna High Court directed the Bihar police chief to deploy adequate security forces to ensure a check on cheating at examination centers.
