New Delhi, April 22, 2013:

Policemen, 2 MCD teachers among 9 held in scam

Nine persons, including two MCD teachers, have been arrested for running an organised cheating racket over Sunday’s staff selection commission examination by charging Rs 3 lakh-Rs 5 lakh, police said on Monday. The gang also includes a sales tax inspector, a clerk with the External Affairs Ministry, two Delhi Police officers and two MA students.

According to Ravindra Yadav, additional commissioner of police (crime and railways), question papers and answer keys were being sent through e-mail. The examination is held for recruitment of income tax inspectors, excise inspectors, auditors in CAG, and CBI sub-inspectors among others.

MCD teachers Mukesh Kumar and Ashu Sharma were held with Lohit Vats, clerk in MEA posted at Jawaharlal Nehru Bhawan, Macchita Malik, a sales tax inspector, Delhi Police head constable Ajit Singh Khatri and Delhi Police constable Sahil Kadyan. Amit Kumar is a teacher in Haryana, while Ravinder Singh and Kulvir Singh are students. The gang was busted after crime branch received information that organized cheating was being planned at a house in outer Delhi’s Pooth Kalan on Sunday. A police team was constituted and a raid was conducted the house.

 All the accused were present in a room with laptops, printers and mobile phones. “It came to light that they were solving question papers and preparing answers of the examination. They had received question papers and were further sending documents through electronic devices to interested persons after taking huge money as compensation,” Yadav said.

It was revealed during interrogation that the question paper and answer keys were being sent by a person named Bijender Chhikara through SMS and e-mails. “The print out of the paper was verified from an examination centre at a school in Rohini Sector 11. After comparing the leaked question paper with the original paper, the principal certified that the question paper matched the original set of papers,” Yadav added. A case has been lodged with crime branch police station.
