Police said the accused had set up a lab in a private school in Panipat and were allegedly in touch with some of those who appeared in the said exam. The police also recovered 14 bluetooth dots, 11 bluetooths and six mobile phones from their possession.

Police officials said the accused admitted that they had helped around 40 candidates in securing jobs in the past couple of years.
