The cheating mafias will be booked under the stringent National Security Act (NSA). “We will take stringent action against those who run gangs that aid the use of unfair means during board exams, change answer sheets, leak question papers and resort to other mass-copying antics. We will take stringent action against them and not hesitate in imposing the NSA on them,” Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma said earlier to the Indian Express.
