Rohtak, September 14

The police have arrested two persons in connection with a case pertaining to the use of unfair means in an online entrance test of the Air Force.

The matter came to light when a Vigilance team of the Air Force raided an examination centre here on Thursday and detected the cheating mechanism.

In a complaint lodged with the police, the team in-charge, Wing Commander Rahul Sharma, said they found that some candidates were sitting idle while their test papers were getting automatically solved on computer screens at Shri Krishna Online Solutions centre located near the Hisar bypass in Rohtak.

On probing further, the team found that a data cable connected to the computer system was taken through a hole in the wall to an adjacent building, where the papers were being run on some laptops. The computers installed at the examination centre were connected to some laptops placed in the adjacent building and the examination system was being hacked with the help of a remote mechanism.

SHO (City) Jagbir Singh said a case had been registered under Sections 420 and 120-B of the IPC and Sections 66 and 66(B) of the Information Technology Act, 2000. Two persons — computer operator Hardik of Ganaur and Sombir of Dhanana village in Sonepat district — had been arrested, he added.
