Uttar Pradesh: 12 arrested for cheating in recruitment exam

February 9, 2024

The Special Task Force (STF) of the Uttar Pradesh Police reported a significant development on Thursday, confirming the apprehension of 12 individuals in Baghpat in connection with their involvement in fraudulent activities during the UP Police Online Computer Operator Recruitment Examination. The arrested individuals were identified as solvers, with the Deputy Superintendent of Police of STF, Brijesh Kumar Singh, noting that the leader of the gang was also taken into custody.

The illicit activities came to light when the police discovered that certain candidates’ question papers had been solved using remote access software, with monetary transactions involved. The arrests were carried out in the Awas Vikas Colony Baraut, and the leader of the gang was identified as Rachit Chaudhary. Among the items recovered during the operation were three laptops, a desktop computer, eight mobile phones, eight admit cards, and various other materials.

In the course of the interrogation, the accused individuals divulged that they charged candidates a substantial amount, ranging from Rs 4 to 5 lakh, for solving their papers through remote access. This revelation pointed to an organized operation aimed at exploiting the examination process for financial gain.

A case has been officially registered against the arrested individuals, marking the initiation of a legal process to address the alleged wrongdoing. The recovered electronic devices and materials will likely serve as crucial evidence in the ongoing investigation. The gravity of the situation is underscored by the systematic nature of the operation, involving multiple individuals engaged in facilitating unfair practices for monetary benefits.

The authorities involved, particularly the STF, are committed to pursuing a thorough investigation to uncover the extent of the malpractices and identify any additional individuals involved in this illicit network. The incident not only raises concerns about the integrity of recruitment examinations but also highlights the need for enhanced security measures to prevent such fraudulent activities in the future.

As legal proceedings progress, the case against the arrested individuals will likely shed light on the broader implications of their actions and contribute to strengthening measures to safeguard the integrity of recruitment processes, ensuring a fair and transparent system for aspiring candidates.
