On March 27, a joint team of the UP Special Task Force and Delhi Police Crime Branch had busted a gang involved in the said case.

 

They had arrested four accused in the case, who used to help candidates cheat in the exams with the help of an online app called 'Team Viewer'.

On February 24, the SSC released a notice saying that the exam held on February 21 was delayed due to 'technical reasons' and will be re-conducted on March 9, 2018.
