Student Protest Against UP Police Paper Leak

Lucknow police have filed a case in the UP police constable recruitment examination paper leak incident. Candidates who took the UP police constable recruitment exam in 2024 gathered at Eco Garden in Lucknow, staging a large protest and demanding a re-examination. They argued that the exam’s integrity was compromised when a question paper circulated on social media hours before the test.

There were allegations that the paper was available for purchase at prices ranging from Rs 50,000 to Rs 2 lakh, and many candidates had access to it 8-12 hours before the exam started. An internal committee has been formed to investigate these claims of paper leak and the circulation of question papers and answer sheets on social media.

Who Was Behind Leaking UP Police Constable Recruitment Exam Papers?

The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) is now investigating the paper leak. They have gathered digital evidence related to the leak and activated multiple teams for the inquiry. The STF also obtained evidence from Vivek Kumar, a teacher associated with Exampur, a startup that helps candidates prepare for government exams. Kumar was the one who initially informed the police about the paper leak. Over 48 lakh candidates participated in the statewide examination.

The Uttar Pradesh government has announced that the STF will lead the investigation into the paper leak. The government instructed the recruitment board to file an FIR where negligence occurred and take appropriate action. Strict measures will be taken against those found guilty, whether individuals or organizations.

In the last three days, the police in Uttar Pradesh have arrested or detained 244 people for allegedly using or planning to use unfair methods in the police constable recruitment exam.
