With the arrest of nine persons, the police on Sunday claimed to have busted a gang allegedly involved in leaking Naib Tehsildar exam paper conducted on Sunday. 

Among them, three of the accused were arrested by the Special Task Force (SFT) in Gurugram. The paper was leaked in Karnal and solved in Gurugram. The accused were nabbed before providing answer key to the examinees.

Rewari SP Rahul Sharma informed 4,600 candidates took the exam for appointment as Naib Tehsildar at 33 centres in the district.

“We got a tip-off that a gang was trying to provide answer key to examinees in some centres. On inquiry, the cyber cell found that answer key was to be provided to Dinesh and his brother Manoj of Baans village (Hisar) who were taking the exam in different centres. Gang members were roaming outside their centres for helping the aspirants,” said Sharma.

He added that the cell also got information that one Pankaj was operating the gang from Gurugram. The STF Gurugram was informed about the gang. In the meantime, local police nabbed one Akhil from outside Jain Kanya School. On interrogation, he said Pankaj had sent answer key to him from Gurugram and it was to be given to Dinesh and Manoj.

“Akhil also revealed that the task to provide answer key to Manoj at an examination centre set up in Mount Litra School was handed over to school clerk Jasbir, class 4 employee Kuldeep and Deepak, brother-in-law of Manoj. The police rushed to Mount Litra School and nabbed Deepak, Jasbir and Kuldeep, but Manoj manage to escape,” said Sharma, adding that Dinesh was later arrested another centre at Jain Girls School.  

The SP maintained Dinesh during interrogation admitted that his gang was involved in leaking the paper. In the meantime, the STF also arrested Pankaj and three others in Gurugram.

“The paper was leaked from SS International School in Karnal and its employee Raj Kumar was involved. He has also been arrested,” he said.
