Youth impersonates in exam, arrested

A 22-year-old man was arrested for impersonating during a state selection commission exam in return for Rs 70,000.

Having failed to complete his BTech degree and finding it difficult to make both ends meet, Yogesh accepted to appear for an exam in place of Pradeep for money, police said.

Yogesh, who hails from Jind district in Haryana, was caught at the Malviya Nagar examination centre on Sunday after the invigilator heard the sound of a mobile phone.
The invigilator found that the sound emanated from near Yogesh after which he tried to escape but was caught, added the official.

“On searching him, they found a bluetooth device attached to the mobile phone, three passport size photographs and a driving licence of Pradeep were recovered from his possession,” said the official.

On interrogation, it was found that Yogesh was appearing for the exam in place of Pradeep.
“Yogesh took the admission in BTech (Computer Science) in the year 2008 at Jind Institute of Engineering and Technology and could not complete his degree. He then shifted to Delhi along with his three other friends,” the official added.

All the four were staying in an accommodation in Mukherjee Nagar and were preparing for a Combined Graduate Level examination conducted by SSC.

Since Yogesh was under financial crunch, Dharmendra contacted him and gave an idea for writing the exam in place of Pradeep, who was known to him.

He was promised Rs 70,000 for clearing the exam, said the official.
