New Delhi: The Delhi police arrested two persons for allegedly using unfair means during the examination at Delhi University’s Ramjas College on Wednesday.

One of them was identified as Rahul, a resident of Hapur UP, who was a former student of Ramjas College and was pursuing B.Sc. The second accused was identified as Yashveer Yadav, a resident of Rewari, Haryana.

The incident happened on Wednesday during electro-chemistry exam. The raiding team of professors asked Yadav to prove his identity, but he failed to do so. He was taking exam on behalf of Rahul by forging the admit card. Yadav said that he knew Rahul for a long time. As he could not pass the exam last time, he asked for help.

In 44 cases, students were caught using mobile phones, copying from notes, and so on.
