Police on Sunday nabbed three people and claimed to have busted a gang that was out to facilitate cheating by using high-tech gadgets in the civil police and state armed constabulary constable recruitment examination in Allahabad.
The offline examination is set to take place across the state on Monday and Tuesday.
Allahabad SSP Nitin Tiwari on Sunday night said the three people arrested in connection with the racket from the Shivkuti area of the city were Phulchandra Patel of Holagarh, Manish Kumar Yadav of Sarai Inayat (Allahabad) and Ajay Kumar Yadav of Uttraon (Allahabad). He said during interrogation the trio revealed that the gang was led by Devki Nandan of Soraon (Allahabad), Radhey Shyam Pandey of Ambedkar Nagar district and Sudhir Kumar Yadav of Uttraon (Allahabad).
The SSP said that a hunt was on to nab the gang leaders, who used to take Rs 5 lakh each from a candidate. Radhey Shyam Pandey had been arrested in the past too and was sent to jail for various frauds and criminal rackets. Police recovered three mobile phones, two blue tooth devices, two electronic devices, two bluetooth device batteries and a bike, among other things, from the people. They often used these devices to help candidates cheat during exams, the SSP said.
