Six arrested in Librarian recruitment exam paper leak case.

Jaipur: Rajasthan Subordinate and Ministerial Services Selection Board (RSMSSB) cancelled the Librarian (Grade 3) direct Recruitment Exam 2018 three days after the police revealed that the paper was leaked and arrested six people in this regard. The paper leaked barely two hours before the exam was to take place on December 29. The RSMSSB officials were in a denial mode arguing that they were yet to determine whether the paper actually leaked, but cancelled the exam after receiving a detailed report in this regard from the police.

A press release was issued by Dr BL Jatawat, chairman of the board on Wednesday. The release cited paper leak as the reason for the cancellation of the exam.

“The new dates of the exam will be announced soon,” the release reads. The exam was conducted in Jaipur, Kota and Ajmer on December 29.

The police had raided a PG Hostel in Vidhyadhar Nagar of Jaipur and arrested six people including     Mausami Choudhary (candidate), Brahma Choudhary, Amit Choudhary, Pradeep Kumar, Surendra Kumar and Manoj Kumar. Three others including the kingpin, identified as Sandeep who runs a coaching institute and middlemen Shiv Bhagwan and Vikram are still at large. It came up during preliminary investigation that the paper was sold to the candidates for Rs 5 lakh each. The questions in the paper found in possession of those arrested matched exactly with the questions in the original paper.
