CBI has detained a Russian for his alleged role in the JEE paper leak case

6 Key Points

This is not the first case of Russian Hacker invading Indian Systems
  • Indulged students were able to cheat because ‘teachers’ or impersonators were able to take charge of their computers and take the exam instead of students. A private coaching institute named Affinity Education in Uttar Pradesh’s Noida had solved the question paper for students. Around ₹ 12-15 lakh rupees was paid to the institute.
  • The ‘remote access’ was provisioned by the examination center in Sonepat in Haryana. Twenty students were believed to have cheated and were banned from taking the exam for the next three years.
  • A case was then registered by the CBI, which conducted raids in different cities and seized laptops and other equipment used in the scam.

PR’s Take:
