“The question paper had four different sets with corresponding answer keys. Around 11.50 am, I got a WhatsApp message containing one set. I immediately checked it and unfortunately, it happened to be one set,” State Level Police Recruitment Board (SLPRB) Chairman Pradeep Kumar told PTI.

Several district superintendents of police informed that the examination, which had started at 12 pm, had been stopped immediately after instructions from the SLPRB, he said.

Kumar said the chief minister and the DGP were informed about the question paper leak immediately and Sonowal directed cancellation of the examination.

Asked about the possible source of the leak, Kumar said the papers were taken from Guwahati by all district police with proper escorts and these were under their custody till the examination started this afternoon.

“A proper investigation will detect the source and find the culprits. The case has been handed over to the CID already. The IG (inspector general) of the Special Branch will do a separate inquiry. Also, the Karbi Anglong police will register a case as the WhatsApp message was anticipated to have originated from there,” he said.

Chief Minister Sonowal has instructed the DGP to apprehend the culprits involved in the leaking of the question paper for the recruitment of police officials.

“The CM instructed the DGP to identify the nexus, which conspired to spoil the recruitment process, and give strict punishment as soon as possible,” a statement from the Chief Minister’s Office said.

On September 12, the SLPRB chairman had issued a notice cautioning candidates against touts after an audio clip went viral that promised sub-inspector jobs against payment of money.
