PAs paper too was leaked, Rs 4 cr deal was struck for Foresters’ exam
Scamsters even sold question paper of Haryana from Jammu
JAMMU, Sept 29: In a sensational revelation, it has surfaced during investigations by the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) that not only the exams were leaked in connivance with Services Selection Board (SSB) previously but even OMR sheets had also been replaced in lieu of money while question paper of Panchayat Assistants had also been leaked and a deal of Rs 4 crore was struck between paper leakers of Haryana and Jammu-based scamsters for upcoming examination of Foresters.
Details gathered by the Excelsior revealed that three senior ranking officers of the SSB (two now shifted from the Board) were involved in replacing OMR sheets in the exams. So far, replacement of 28 OMR sheets has been noticed and more sheets are being scrutinized to see how deep the roots of sheets replacing scam were in the Services Selection Board.
Change of OMR sheets was detected as signatures of the Invigilators in the exam centre didn’t match on the OMR sheets available with the SSB.
This clearly means that OMR sheets signed by the Invigilators after completion of the paper at the examination centre were replaced and someone else signed for the Invigilators hoping that it will never be detected as none in the SSB earlier anticipated the Government and CBI crackdown on the Board,” sources said.
It may be mentioned here that leakage of question paper of Sub Inspectors in Jammu and Kashmir Police was detected first followed by FAAs and JE Civil. All these three exams were cancelled by the Government and will be held now in October.
