The Congress Chief informed Karwal about the fact that candidate data is available on certain websites for a price and over 2 lakh students have had their data leaked till now.

Gandhi expressed his shock over this alarming incident which has compromised the privacy of the students. ” I am shocked by this wide scale theft of personal data that has compromised the privacy of candidates across the country,” he wrote.
