While the arrest of three persons identified as Kuldeep, Mohit and Deepak (all from a Hooda caste) of Asan village here in connection with molestation of two sisters had hit the national headlines on Sunday after a video went viral, two other boys had brought infamy to village.

Vishal and Davinder from the same village were caught by Haryana police on November 30 during a raid at their house while they were allegedly supplying solved keys of the national-level railway recruitment examination.

The police had booked seven persons, including these two from Asan village, under Sections 420 (fraud), 120-B (common intent) of the IPC and under sections of Information Technology Act. The police said they had received a tip-off that Vishal and Davinder were sending answer keys through a mobile application to some students appearing in railway recruitment exam (grade-4) held in four cities, including Delhi.

Sources said they were found in possession of four sets of leaked examination paper and had charged `2 lakh from 21 students to be benefited from their illegal act.

Notably, another incident at this village occurred on Wednesday morning was also the talk of town in which a Dalit boy had eloped with a girl from the Jat community. The inter-caste marriage is considered a taboo subject in this part of state.
