"Governments simply need to ensure that every school has clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene." In one district of eastern Nepal there was just one toilet ...

Maths paper row: Kerala Class X student withdraws plea 21.5.2018 General News
A Class X student, who had claimed she was given the 2016 question paper during the CBSE Mathematics exam this year, withdrew her plea before the Kerala High Court today. She had sought that her answer sheet be assessed based on the 2016 question paper. The move came after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) refuted Ameeya Saleem's charge and said that it would go ahead with legal action against her for making "false" claims. The student's lawyer said the petition was withdrawn to ensure that her further studies were not affected. Ameeya had filed the petition before the Kerala High Court claiming that she was given a wrong question paper in the recent Mathematics board exam.

In its counter-affidavit submitted to the court in response to the student's plea, the CBSE had said that instead of using the 2018 question paper, Ameeya had used her brother's question paper
