On February 24, chief minister Yogi Adityanath asked the STF to probe the matter and take strict action against those involved in the question paper leak after the cancellation of the UP Police Constable Recruitment Examination-2023 for 60,244 posts. He directed officials to conduct the re-examination within six months with full transparency.
