JAIPUR: Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot said that the government would leave no stone unturned to wipe out organized gangs involved in examination paper leaks. He also noted that paper leaks are happening in every state, but Rajasthan was taking strong action against the culprits. Most criminals involved in paper leaks are languishing behind bars in the state, he said.

He was responding to a question regarding the paper leak of the Forester Recruitment Exam. He said that many inter-state gangs have nexus with local gangs. For this reason, the paper leak incidents are being reported at the national level, Gehlot said.

“We are taking this issue very seriously. For this reason, many people involved in paper leaks are rotting in jails in Rajasthan,” said Gehlot.

The state government once again faced criticism after the reports of the Forest Recruitment Exam paper leak came out.

In the Forester Recruitment Examination 2020 held on November 12 and 13, the second shift paper was cancelled on November 12, due to which over 4 lakh students were affected. They will have to re-appear in January. However, the date has not been decided yet. The exam was held for the recruitment of 2300 posts.
