Dighi, 11th February 2023: In the recruitment process for the post of Storekeeper Technical (SKT) in the Border Road Organization (BRO) of the Indian Army, a shocking incident has come to light in the Dighi area where a dummy candidate appeared for the exam.

The incident came to light after a part of the question paper of this exam went viral on a Telegram group. In this regard, a case has been registered at Dighi Police Station under Pimpri-Chinchwad Police.

A case has been registered against Manajesh Kumar, a resident of Dhakri, district Firozabad, Uttar Pradesh and the complaint has been filed by senior administrative officer Pradipkumar Namdev Gaikwad.

The central government conducted the recruitment process for the post of SKT of the BRO of the Indian Army for 355 vacancies at the country level on December 18, 2022, at Dighi at two centres. The candidate Manajesh Kumar participated in the recruitment process by submitting the necessary documents.

But for the written exam, a dummy candidate appeared instead of Manajesh and wrote the exam. However, before this matter came to light, after the examination, it was revealed that part of the question paper was posted on a Telegram group named “BRO GROUP SKT TARGET BRO GREF SKT”.

Therefore, when the high-ranking army officers inquired about the said incident, it was revealed that DK Ghatwa and Vishal Thakur had posted the question paper on Telegram. Therefore, the recording of the CCTV cameras installed at the examination centres was checked.

It was revealed that a young man who looked like Manajesh was taking the exam. Manajesh was called for questioning. However, he did not appear for questioning despite being called twice. The ‘BRO’ officials complained to the Cyber Cell of the Pune City Police. The case was then sent to Dilip Shinde, Senior Inspector of Dighi Police Station of Pimpri-Chinchwad Police.

Senior Police Inspector Dr Sanjay Tungar from Cyber Crime Cell checked the entire documents. After that, according to the complaint given by BRO, FIRs were filed for taking pictures of the question paper of the said exam on mobile phones, making it viral on social media, and giving the exam by a dummy candidate. Dr Tungar is investigating the matter further.
