NEW DELHI, Feb 27 � The question paper of an all-India examination for the post of Assistant Administrative Officer of LIC was today leaked in the city ahead of the test, following which police arrested a youth who allegedly sold the papers for Rs 5 lakh each, reports PTI.
Four candidates, who allegedly bought the question papers for the test for Life Insurance Corporation's office cadre post from one Pawan Kumar, a 33-year-old Geography graduate from Delhi University, are also facing arrest, police said.
Terming the incident as unfortunate, Anju Banerjee, Chairman and Managing Director of Educational Consultants India Limited (EDCIL), which is conducting the exams for LIC, told PTI they will decide on whether to cancel the tests after police investigations are over.
The incident came to light after Delhi Police's crime branch got hold of the copies of two sets of question papers for both morning and afternoon sessions last evening and arrested Kumar from Naraina where a raid was conducted.
The test is being conducted in two sessions in 160 centres across the country and 1.65 lakh candidates are appearing for the test.
