Alwar: The police here on Saturday arrested a 22-year-old man who appeared for Rajasthan police sub-inspector recruitment tests and posted photos and videos of his answersheet from the examination hall.
Jaydev Sharma, a resident of Hanumangarh, was arrested from Sri Ganganagar by Alwar’s Kotwali police. Police said that Sharma’s examination centre was allotted in Alwar’s Nehru Public School located in Scheme 4 at Rajendra Nagar locality. He came to Alwar on Wednesday to appear in the recruitment examination. About five minutes before the examination was to get over, Sharma shot videos and photos of his OMR (optical mark reader) also known as the answer sheet, from his mobile phone.
Sharma is accused of uploading photos of his answer sheet on social media. Sources in Alwar police claimed that SDM had taken cognisance of the matter and directed an FIR which was registered on Friday at Kotwali police station in Alwar.
SHO Rajesh Sharma told TOI that a mobile phone was recovered from the accused from which he had shot photos of the answer sheet.
The centre’s superintendent, deputy superintendent and two invigilators have also been charge-sheeted in the matter. The photograph of the OMR sheet of a candidate giving the SI exam went viral on social media on Thursday.
Sources said that the incident hinted at a major breach of the examination centre protocol because mobile phones are strictly prohibited inside the premises. tnn
