Three young men used high-end mobile phones and powerful cameras and bluetooth devices to scan the AIIMS post graduate entrance exam paper and email it to an id of an accomplice stationed outside the exam hall. But how they managed to carry the devices in is not clear.
Apparently frisking at the examination centre at Sector 28 Noida was lax, which helped the three accused secret their Sony Xperia and Nokia Lumia phones in with camera, specific softwares and bluetooth device to scan the question papers.
Amit Punia, MBBS from PGI Rohtak, Kapil Kumar, 27, MBA, Jamia Milia university and Krishan Pratap, 27, MA in public administration from Jamia Milia university and an MBA from IMC Meerut were arrested along with two others for attempting to leak the AIIMS question paper.
Punia, along with Kumar and Pratap, the latter two posing as medical students, entered the hall with their gadgets and once the three got the question papers, they clicked pictures of the papers and sent them to an email id of Bhisham Singh, 27, who was operating a computer in a rented accommodation outside the hall.
The bluetooth and the earphone helped.
With a bluetooth device stitched to their shirts, one of the accused using a tiny earphone, the three "students" were able to confirm whether the transmitted photographs were legible.
