Paper leak cases are not taking the name of stopping in the country. Recently, paper leak cases were reported in many states of the country. At the same time, this time an attempt was made to leak the REET paper in Rajasthan. The Rajasthan Police has ruined these plans of the copycat mafia. The Rajasthan Police on Saturday raided a marriage hall in Jodhpur to foil an alleged attempt to leak teacher recruitment question papers. Here the police have arrested 37 people including students. Rajasthan Police has given information about this. Only last month the case of paper leak had come to light in Gujarat and Bihar.
It is noteworthy that the teacher recruitment examination was conducted by the Rajasthan Staff Selection Board in two shifts on Saturday. This teacher recruitment exam was conducted in the first phase (for teachers of class I to V) and second phase (for teachers of classes VI to VIII). This exam was conducted in two shifts from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm and from 3.00 pm to 5.30 pm. Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Amrita Duhan said that the papers received from the arrested persons were not matching with the original papers. Duhan told that hours before the examination, raids were conducted at Udaygarh Marriage Palace in Mandore area. He told that we had received secret information that the question paper has been leaked by some students living there. The police officer said that all the arrested students were about to appear for the first shift exam.
He told, “We have registered an FIR under Section-420 (cheating) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC as well as Section-10(2) of the Rajasthan Public Examination Act. Duhan said that Thori had allegedly made a deal to give papers to students for Rs 3 to 8 lakh. "We are also probing whether Thori knew whether the question papers were genuine or fake, as well as whether he had any connection with the earlier paper leak cases," he said. Meanwhile, mobile internet service was suspended in Jodhpur due to the examination. Significantly, there was an uproar in September 2021 when the question papers of the Rajasthan Teacher Eligibility Test (Reet) were leaked and eventually the exam was cancelled.
