NEW DELHI - The question papers of an all-India examination for posts of 375 assistant administrative officers in the Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) were leaked, police said Sunday. A youth, allegedly selling them for Rs.5 lakh each, was arrested.
On the basis of a tip-off, police got hold of two sets of question papers for the morning and afternoon sessions of the exam which was held Sunday.
They arrested Pawan Kumar, a geography graduate from Delhi University from Naraina area of west Delhi, police said. He sold the papers to four candidates who are being interrogated and are likely to be arrested soon.
“We went to three centres in Delhi and one in Chandigarh and tallied the seized copies with the original question paper which were found to be the same,” a police official said.
Kumar had earlier failed to clear the civil services examination and was a businessman for the last six years. He had been arrested on a previous occasion for impersonation in Delhi pre-medical entrance test in 2005, the official added.
Police are searching for the man who provided these papers to Kumar for selling.
