SSC CGL paper leak: On Wednesday Delhi police have arrested four men for their involvement in the alleged Staff Selection Commission online exam paper leak earlier in February.The police said that the men hired around 150 people to hack the systems, access the papers and to solve them. They were charging around Rs 10-15 lakh from each candidate for the questions paper. The police also added that around Rs 50 lakh, a laptop and 10 cell phones were seized from the arrested men through a joint operation held by the Delhi police and the Uttar Pradesh police.
The accused, who have been identified as Ajay Kumar, Gaurav, Sonu Singh and Param, used to charge lakhs from each candidate. As per reports, the accused used to help the SSC candidate via software installed in computers.An FIR has been registered against the accused at Timarpur police station.
As per details by DSP (UP STF) Brijesh Singh the accused persons would gain access to the computer systems of the candidates who paid the money while the solver would answer all the questions using the software. “When the Team Viewer software could not be used, they would take control of the computer by fixing the LAN connections with that of another computer in the exam centre and answer all the questions,” Singh was quoted by Indian Express.
The mobile phones will now be examined to find out the number of candidates who had cheated in the exams. The police believe that the candidate’s number may shoot up to “several hundred”. “We have their WhatsApp screenshots, call details and other crucial evidence,” said a police officer.
AS per details by the Police, the members had started their venture by setting up dummy candidates in written exams. Later, when the online exam format had begun, the gang members thought of using team viewer software and also procured examination centres to facilitate cheating.
