Rajasthan Police Constable Recruitment Exam 2018 second schedule that was planned to be held from 20th March 2018 to 31st March 2018 has been postponed by the Rajasthan Police.
As per an official press note released by the Rajasthan Police, over 20 men have been arrested so far for indulging in cheating and impersonation. Rajasthan's Special Operation Group (SOG) and district Police are further investigating the matter.
As per Umesh Mishra, Additional Director General (SOG), two main accused were exposed in a gang that impersonated thumb impressions of the registered candidates and pasted them on proxy candidates to appear in the exam by duping the Biometric Identification System.
"It was found that the gang made a thumbprint impression of the original candidate and pasted it on the thumb of the proxy who took the exam," stated the ADG. "It was also learnt that they used some oil to make the fake thumbprint last for at least one hour. Candidates managed to cheat the biometric attendance system," he added further.
