Two more men were arrested for their alleged involvement in running an organised gang involved in leaking an entrance exam question paper held for the post of constables by the Railway Protection Force (RPF) in Gorakhpur, the crime branch said on Sunday.
Identified as Jai Karan Singh and Mohit Kumar, the duo join the ranks of six persons arrested by the crime branch recently, said Ravindra Yadav, additional commissioner of police (crime).
“Investigation regarding the source of question paper, Robin, led to one Jai Karan, a resident of Meerut, and raids were conducted at his hideouts. He was arrested on July 6. The mobile phone used in the commission of the crime was recovered from his possession,” said Yadav.
His interrogation, the crime branch claimed, revealed that he had indulged in providing the answer keys of various competitive examinations held for government posts through his associate Vikas. Robin was appearing in the examination of the Multi Tasking Staff conducted by the SSC and he had approached Jai Karan who had taken R70,000 from him for arranging the answer keys of the said exam.
“However, Jai Karan could not arrange the answer keys. He assured Robin that he would arrange answer keys of the RPF exam instead. Probe led to another accused, Sunny, who received the answer keys from three mobile phone numbers through SMS,” said additional CP Yadav.
