The nationwide examination for recruitment in the Indian Army has been canceled. It is noteworthy that the question paper was canceled a few minutes before the start of the exam due to a leak. A nationwide written test is scheduled for Sunday for the recruitment of General duty staff. However, the leakage rocket came to light when three suspects were caught an hour before the start of the test. Authorities announced that the test would be canceled. While the examination was scheduled to start at 11 a.m. Police arrested three persons in Pune at around 10 p.m.
Pune Police Commissioner Amitabh Gupta said police had found the details of the questionnaire in the mobile phones of three persons. The details obtained from them were compared with the original questionnaire and it was found that the two were the same. Authorities announced the cancellation of the test in the wake of this. An Army official said a joint operation conducted in collaboration with the Maharashtra Police had found that the entrance test question paper designed for the recruitment of soldiers (General) was leaked.
Officials said the Indian Army would never tolerate irregularities and corruption in the recruitment process for the selection of suitable candidates. He said the operation was carried out in collaboration with the Pune police as per the information received on Saturday night that the questionnaire was leaked. He said an investigation into the matter would continue.
The notification for the recruitment of Army General Duty personnel was issued last year. The examination was postponed due to Corona. Candidates who have passed Class X with 45% marks are eligible for these jobs. Candidates were shocked as the exam was canceled at the last minute.
