SOG arrests six men for helping candidates to cheat in police recruitment exam at one of the examination centers in Malviya Nagar RIICO Area – Saraswati Infotech.

Jaipur: Rajasthan police’s Special Operations Group (SOG) on Tuesday arrested two more men for being part of a racket involved in high-tech cheating in police constable recruitment exam.

The duo was identified as Ramdev Khinchar and Rajeev Dabas. While Ramdev was appearing in the online exam as an aspirant and had allegedly paid money to the gang to cheat, Rajeev was involved in collecting money from the candidates at the behest of the gang.

The six accused men who were arrested on Monday were produced in a court that sent them to 10-day police remand.

Ramdev (25) is a resident of Degana in Nagaur district. Rajeev belongs to Delhi.

“Ramdev had appeared in the exam on March 8. A particular seat had been allotted to him in the examination center, but the members of the gang who were in the center shifted him to another computer on the pretext that the computer allotted to him was not functioning properly,” said ADG, SOG Umesh Mishra.

The new computer had a software program installed. This software program was connected to a remote computer set up by the gang members in a nearby building which had been taken on rent by the bang. Ramdev just set in front of the computer. The gang members who were in a nearby building solved the questions.

The SOG on Monday arrested six men including a partner in Saraswati Infotech – identified as Vikash Malik – for their involvement in helping candidates to cheat in the police constable recruitment exam.

“We got a tip off that one of the examination centers in Malviya Nagar RIICO Area – Saraswati Infotech – was involved in suspicious activities. The examination center owner was helping some candidates to cheat in the exam,” said Mishra.

The five other accused were identified as Amol Mahajan (24), Abhimanu Singh (25), Sanjay Chhikara (25), Ankit Sahrawat (18) and Amit Jat (21). While Abhimanyu Singh and Sanjay are natives of Jhajhar district in Haryana, Ankit belongs to Sonipat district of the same state. Amol hails from Nasik district in Maharashtra, while Amit belongs to Delhi.
