Written test at Ajmer for post of Asst Station Master postponed


In a joint operation by police  of three States, an alleged racket involving leaking of Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) examination papers was busted on Sunday with the arrest of 109 people, including some aspiring candidates, after raids in Jaipur and Bhopal.

Following the arrests, the written test for the post of Assistant Station Master by the RRB, Ajmer scheduled on Sunday was postponed and a new date would be announced later, the board’s chairman C L Bharti said.

While the arrests were made in Jaipur and Bhopal by the police of the respective states, they were working on a tipoff from Uttar Pradesh Police. “With the help of Rajasthan SOG and Bhopal Police raids were carried out in Jaipur and Bhopal.

Lal said, “Bediram, who was a travelling ticket examiner in NE Railway, is the mastermind. In December last year he was arrested from Allahabad by the STF, which busted a similar racket there, and was released on bail recently.” He said after he was nabbed by the STF, the railways terminated Bediram’s services. “We are trying to nab the kingpin, who is at large since being released from jail,” he added.

Brij Lal said that in December last year; the STF busted a gang leaking question papers for a railway examination, in which a few aspirants were also arrested.

“Since then the state police was tracking the gang members. Through electronic surveillance, we came to know that they have leaked the question paper of an examination being conducted by RRB Ajmer today,” he said.

The ADG said that based on the surveillance inputs two teams of UP STF were constituted to crack the network.

In Jaipur, ADG Kapil Garg, ATS & SOG, Rajasthan told reporters that the gang used to charge Rs 4 lakh per candidate. They used to tell aspiring candidates to initially pay Rs 1,000 and submit their original documents including mark sheets and certi?cates as collateral security before the examination.

Aspiring candidates would then have to pay a second instalment of Rs 50,000 after they had been able to match the leaked question paper with the actual one and ?nal payment of the balance amount had to be paid on their selection, Garg said.
