Assignment submitted by one goes in for some other student

I am seeing that few of my students have submitted the assignment however their submission goes in for some another student. When that another student opens the submission tab to submit their work, they find that someone else's submission has been posted on their account. Can someone let me know what might be going wrong? How does Canvas assign someone else's submission to some different person?

Thank you.

Good evening, @moghe_p ...

Sorry to see that your question has been sitting out here unanswered since late May 2020.  By chance, do you know if this was a group assignment...where someone from a group was submitting for all students in the group?  That's the only scenario I can think of where this might be possible.  Otherwise, if each student is logged in to their own account, they should not be able to submit work to you via other accounts.

Hope to hear back from you soon on this.  Take care, stay safe, and be well.
