The Rajasthan police have arrested four persons for allegedly helping students cheat in the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) online exam.

According to Superintendent of Police, Kota, Anshuman Bhomia, the police have seized high-tech devices, computers and hard discs from an exam centre in the Railway Colony police station area.

Online exams for SSC are being conducted in 92 cities across the country including Kota, he said.

The team raided the center on Friday evening and arrested four men hailing from Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, he said.

The modus operandi of the racket was to hack the system through a software, then take screenshots of the paper using high-tech devices and circulate it to other members of the racket in Mathura for answers, the SP said.

The accused are IT experts and teach students for various staff commission exams at coaching centers.

The four accused, identified as Dayaram Sharma (39), Rambabu Gujar (23), Rahul Singh (23) and Dharmendra Sharma (31), have been booked under various sections of the IPC and IT Act.
