New Delhi: The Delhi police Crime Branch, which busted the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) cheating racket last week, has arrested four more persons.
The four accused were arrested for their alleged involvement in the SSC scam on Monday.
The Delhi police joined hands with the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) to crack this cheating racket.
According to police sources, the accused persons have been identified as Anup, Neeraj, Kushal Negi and Dured Ali.
The police have filed a case in Timarpur police station under Section 419, 420 and 120-(b) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 66 of the Information Technology (IT) Act.
According to the police, the accused had provided internet connectivity to the students who were appearing for the exam.
They then downloaded the window sharing application, following which they shared the password with the candidates and helped them in cheating.
The four accused have been made in connection with the ongoing crackdown in the SSC cheating case.
While talking about the accused other than Durga Ali, the police as quoted by “Indian Express” said, that “The police said the three have been produced before the court.
Negi was sent to four-day police custody and the others were sent to judicial custody.”
The police claimed that one of the accused, Ali, was the lab owner where the exam was held and the two labs that aided him in cheating are located in Patparganj and Badarpur.
It may be mentioned here that the gang had procured their own examination centre and they would pay money to the owner of other examination centres, according to the report.
They made the claim that there was a large-scale penetration in the SSC exams.
A police officer added, “We are still trying to ascertain the number of candidates who paid money to cheat. We are also looking into other examination centres which may have been compromised.”
Other than this, the police has nabbed four other men last week in connection with the cheating racket.
After the arrest, the case has been transferred to the Crime Branch from the North district police.
