Earlier, Patiala Police had arrested 5 other accused Navraj Chaudhary alias Gogi, Gurpreet Singh alias Guri, Jatinder Singh alias Makhan, Sonu Kumar and Vijender Singh who are already in the police remand and their interrogation is going on.

The arrested persons have revealed during the investigation that they provided candidates GSM devices with SIM cards inserted in it and very small bluetooth ear buds for seamless connectivity. The candidate would carry the GSM device by concealing it, usually in shoes/socks etc. Thereafter, during the exam hours, the candidate would use previously agreed signals such as coughing/ tapping to communicate the test booklet series received by him to the person who is deputed for dictating the answers. The arrested accused and their associates would accordingly dictate the correct answers to the candidates during the test.

The arrested accused Varjinder Singh s/o Satyavan r/o Nachar Khera, Jind, Haryana, disclosed that dummy candidates, who had applied for the exams purely for the purposes of capturing the picture of question papers with the help of wireless cameras, would then send it outside to predetermined persons. The subject matter experts of different subjects from outside locations like Haryana, who had already been roped in this criminal conspiracy, would then solve the questions and accordingly answer key was prepared. The answer key was then dictated to the candidates via GSM/ bluetooth device.
