SSC paper leak: Four accused sent to 7-day police custody

Jitendra Singh said that in view of some sporadic incidents of alleged cheating by some candidates at a few venues and subsequent agitation by a section of candidates, Staff Selection Commission (SSC), in order to reaffirm the candidates' faith in the examination process, had recommended for an impartial enquiry into the matter by the CBI, he said. This gang is believed to help candidates cheat in the exams by using remote access tool software like Team Viewer.

Police said the men relied on Team Viewer and AMMYY software that allows a user to take control of a computer remotely.

The accused, who have been identified as Ajay Kumar, Gaurav, Sonu Singh and Param, used to charge lakhs from each candidate.

"The accused would gain access to the computer systems of the candidates who paid money". Where they couldn't use Team Viewer and AMMYY, they worked through Local Area Network (LAN) that allows interconnection of computers in an area.

Police seized 10 mobile phones, three laptops, five bluetooth devices, one hard disk, a pen drive, router, three luxury cars and cash, the officer added. They were operating the racket since 2011, Yash said.

"This gang is suspected to have links with other computer labs that made cheating possible on a large scale", said an investigator. "We recovered Rs 51.8 lakh from the flat in Gandhi Vihar that we raided", said Narwal. Our officers caught him when he was helping a candidate solve his paper through Team Viwer. However, they had also managed to trace their activities in other states.

"During interrogation, the accused confessed to involvement in the online hacking of the SSC exam".
