Srinagar: Getting a “coveted government job” in today’s world is no less than an ordeal. This urge to find sarkari naukri sometimes leads people to take desperate measures.
Recently, in Uttar Pradesh, an aspirant for sub-inspector examination was caught cheating by the authorities through an unimaginable method. He had hidden a hi-tech bluetooth wireless set inside a wig. However, despite his crafty and clever attempt, he was caught by the authorities.
In a video shared by IPS officer Rupin Sharma, the police show how they discovered that something was amiss when the metal detector started pinging near the man’s head. What made the matter even more intriguing is that the wireless headphones being used by the man were so minuscule that even he could not take them out, though he admitted having them in both ears.
The video has gone viral triggering a sharp reaction from the netizens. They raised concerns about how the youth is pushed to take desperate and extreme measures to secure a government job. Others are asking the government to hire the man, owing to his creativity.
In recent years, many instances of organized cheating scandals have shocked the country. The malice of cheating seems to have specially affected the police recruitments. In 2018, the CID held 42 people in West Bengal for allegedly cheating in a constable recruitment exam using improvised wireless devices. Similarly, in the same year a large syndicate of cheating facilitators was busted at various locations of Uttar Pradesh for aiding cheating through hi-tech devices like spy-mics, and placing “solvers” in Uttar Pradesh Police constable recruitment examination.
