Rohini, an examinee in PUC. , was thoroughly checked while entering into the examination hall. She did not have anything other than authorized materials such as pen, instrument box, etc. , with her. As she was writing her paper, an invigilator found close to her feet a bunch of chits. The invigilator on scrutiny found that the chits contained answers to the paper being written by Rohini.
