Jaipur: Two days after busing a network involved in paper leaks, the special operations group (SOG) has now shifted its focus to a nexus of RU professors and book publishers in Rajasthan. It has come up during preliminary investigation that examination papers of graduate and undergraduate studies ended up having the same questions that some publishing houses included in their guess papers published weeks before these exams. The possibility that publishing houses were paying papers setters to include questions from their guess papers is not being ruled out.
Latest News & Update: Paper leak case: Rajasthan University’s secrecy branch under scanSOG has already arrested an employee of a publishing house and a paper setter BL Gupta who is a retired RU professor. RU professors apparently have more reason to leak question papers to publishing houses. Many RU professors write academic books and to ensure that these publishing houses continue to use them as authors, they may have bribed these publishers by leaking papers to them. If questions from a publishing house’s guess papers and pass books show up in the actual examination paper, it results in increased sale.
