 NEW DELHI: Police managed to thwart yet another attempt to cheat in a government competitive examination with the aid of cellphones. The incident was reported from a government school in Rohini of northwest Delhi where the Staff Selection Commission examination was slated to be organized on Sunday.The police found out that a control room had been set by the accused at a government school in U-Block of Mangolpuri. What was shocking was that the people involved in the crime included the school's principal and a Delhi Police constable posted with the third battalion of Delhi Armed Police. Senior police officers said that they got a breakthrough in the case when the constable Harish (31) was apprehended after a tip-off about the gang. On Friday, TOI had first reported the possible involvement of a cop behind the paper leak incidents."Apart from Harish, the school principal, identified as Krishan Kumar (57), and a teacher, Narendra Dahiya (42), were arrested for facilitating the paper leak. Another gang member, identified as Manoj (24), has also been arrested," said deputy commissioner of police, BS Jaiswal. The students, who were to receive the answers, had paid as high as Rs 6 lakh each, added a source.DCP Jaiswal said that the ACP Bawana, K P S Malhotra, and his team had been assigned to execute the operation due to their previous record of busting the racket run by Ravi Attri involved in the AIIMS and SBI paper leaks."The ACP Bawana intercepted a Santro car near Sector 25 of Rohini on an informer's tip-off and apprehended Manoj and constable Harish. A phone with images of the question papers was recovered from them. After their interrogation, the schools in U-Block Mangolpuri and Sector 1 Rohini were raided and the principal and teacher arrested," Jaiswal said.On interrogation, the accused revealed that their entry into the school was facilitated by Dahiya, a physical education teacher. The plan was to scan the question papers with the help of the teacher and the principal and then prints were to be taken out at the control room. There the question paper would be solved with the help of experts and guides and then the answers would be either dictated or messaged to the students who would be in possession of the cell phones inside the examination centre.On Sunday, Manoj entered the premises at 9.30am, scanned the paper on the phone and rushed out by 9.40am. They were on their way to the control room when they were nabbed. Harish is suspected to be behind last Sunday's paper leak case in Model town, too.The modus operandi in this case was different than the earlier ones as the question paper was leaked by the gang members with the teacher's help and not by dummy students from inside the exam hall.The answer was to be sent in two ways. One by text messages to students who had paid less or via calls to cell phones whose microphones and earpieces would be stitched to customized shirts of those who had paid well.Information gathered from Internet from Click Here
