CBI raids leave candidates shocked

November 12, 2012

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raids at 11 examination centres where the entrance exam for MD courses of the PGI was being held gave anxious moments to candidates appearing in exam.

Witnessing CBI sleuths at the examination centre left them surprised and distracted. One of the candidates who appeared at Sri Guru Gobind Singh Senior Secondary School in Sector 35 said: “As soon the CBI officials nabbed one of the candidates we got to know that something was wrong. Although the CBI officials asked the candidate to silently come out of the examination room, we could make out that it was a case of cheating,” added the candidate.

The candidates, who had come from various parts of country, looked worried that the incident might lead to the cancellation of the exam. “The arrests led to restlessness among many candidates who felt that the controversy might lead to rescheduling of the exam. However, later we were informed that exam has not been cancelled,” said a candidate hailing from Delhi.

CBI sleuths baffled

Students have devised novel ways of cheating during exams. The cheating racket in the PGI entrance exam once again exposed the misuse of sophisticated devices during exams. The CBI sleuths were for a moment baffled by the modus operandi adopted by the candidates, who were appearing in the exam at Chandigarh, and their ‘tutors’, who were sitting in Patna and Hyderabad, and dictating the answers through mobile-enabled Bluetooth.

In the absence of scanners to frisk candidates, mobile phones were taken by the candidates in the exam centre. They clicked the pictures of the question paper and sent it through email to their helpers.

Devices like laptops, micro earphones, sophisticated mobile phones, bluetooth devices, special clothes fitted with sophisticated devices, buttonhole camera, tablet computer, wireless earplugs recovered from seven people rounded up from a hotel in Sector 35 in connection with the cheating racket has even left the CBI officials surprised. “The special clothes with devices fitted in them are something which is new when it comes to cheating in the exam,” said a CBI official.
