Chemistry paper printing computer operator in custody

A computer operator who had computerised a Chemistry paper, similar to the Advanced Level Chemistry second paper, has been taken into custody by Gampaha police officers on Monday (21).

The suspect has computerised the Chemistry paper on a request of a tuition master.
