SSC CGL paper leak

SSC exam fraud: UP STF, Delhi Police arrest 4 hackers

In a major crackdown, Delhi Police and Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) have jointly busted the gang involved in the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) examination fraud. The police have also recovered 10 mobile phones, 3 laptops, 3 luxury cars, a pen drive and Rs 5 lakh cash.

A case under IPC sections 419 (impersonation) and 420 (cheating) along with relevant sections of IT Act has been lodged at Timarpur police station. Two other persons Harpal and Anni, who are also the members of the same gang are absconding.

For the unversed, Hasan is the same person who was arrested by the Amboli police on March 19 for allegedly supplying the History paper to students from MVM Swami Muktanand High School in Veera Desai Road, Andheri west, on their mobile phones, just half an hour before the exam was to begin. They would remotely access the server where the question paper was uploaded through a software, Team Viewer. AS per details by the Police, the members had started their venture by setting up dummy candidates in written exams.

"The UP Police STF got information about the gang after which a team led by inspector Sunil Kumar was formed to conduct raids". Police sources said that they also had passwords to access the server, which are normally available with examiners and technicians working with SSC.

After protest from candidates about the SSC CGL exam paper leak, CBI had been roped in to investigate the matter.

The Combined Graduate Level (CGL) examination 2017 has not been cancelled and there is no question of re-conducting it, the government said on Wednesday. Sources said that the accused have named a few SSC employees who would also be questioned by the joint team. The UP STF and Delhi Police have arrested 4 people, identified as Sonu Singh, Ajay Jaiswal, Param and Gaurav.

This gang was alleged to have a network with the centres of the examination and computer labs across various cities.
