The Hush Post: The Indian Air Force officials broke a major fraud in an online exam to recruit non-commissioned officers in Rohtak.
The accused had been able to get remote access to the computers, on which the candidates appeared for the exam. As a result, those appearing for the exams just sat there without touching the computers. At the same time, the answers kept getting filled.
Later, IAF registered an FIR in the Rohtak City Police Station.
As per preliminary police investigations, at least five computers had been hacked. On top of that, there were parallel systems running with the help of which the answers were being given.
The exam was being conducted by Centre for Development of Advanced Computing.
The hell broke loose when on inquiry a CAT 6 fibre cable was detected at the exam centre. The officials tried to trace the cable and found that it ran into a first-floor of an adjacent private hospital. There five men manned computers and passed on the questions to an expert.
Two people have been arrested so far although the people who would have benefited is not clear. Two accused have been arrested who have said that they used to charge Rs 3.50 to six lakh from the aspirants. The mastermind named Aditya who ran a computer centre is reportedly missing.
