New Delhi: Inspired by Bollywood film Munna Bhai MBBS, a woman, in her mid twenties, was arrested by Mukherjee Nagar police for allegedly impersonating as a candidate in KVS primary teacher recruitment exam which was held at a public school in Northwest Delhi on January 7.
The arrested woman is from Sonipat in Haryana and was a part of a syndicate involved in running a racket of placing fake candidates in competitive examination on behalf of real candidates. The cheat was exposed when the invigilator noticed the dissimilarities between the admit card of the real candidate and ID card produced by the accused and subsequently informed the school principal.
The police was informed, who visited the spot and recovered a mobile phone with earphones, one copper wire covered with doctor tape and one small button cell from the accused lady.
When questioned, the woman spilled the beans and told the police about the modus operandi of the gang. “She said that she had come in contact with one Sunny at Panipat, who further introduced her with Ajay. Anil and Johny are masterminds and are running racket of placing fake candidates in competitive examination on behalf of real candidates in lieu of hefty amount,” said a senior police officer.
The gang is suspected to have over five to six members, all hailing from Sonipat and Panipat and were inspired from Bollywood movie Munna Bhai MBBS. They decided to use the technique and lure candidates following which they prepared specially designed clothes. During questioning, the police learnt that Anil and Johny gave her the mobile phone with earphone, one small button cell with copper wire. They told her that the button cell would be used as a bluetooth with the help of copper wire being connected to the earphone. “Once the examination started, the accused persons were supposed to call her and inquire the code of her paper. She was to be provided answer key of the paper on phone call and her task was to darken the circles in the answer sheet,” added the senior officer.
The police suspects that the gang might have committed similar offences in other states too, though in Delhi it is the first case which has come to light. “The gang members had promised the woman that she will be given Rs 1 lakh after the examination. However, she ran out of luck and was caught red-handed,” added the police officer.
