The Bihar police have busted an examination racket and arrested four persons, including medico Lallan Kumar, for sitting for entrance tests under false names.

“By taking the All India Pre-Medical test and other such exams, the accused persons secured merit seats in the institutions. After getting a seat, they did not take admission, thereby facilitating the conversion of the merit seat to management quota as per the rules, for a sum,” Director General of Police Abhayanand told reporters on Tuesday.

The operators of this racket are spread over Bihar, West Bengal, Delhi, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Chennai.

The police have recovered laptops, Bluetooth devices and other incriminating documents. One of the accused, Vikas Kumar, was nabbed while taking the secretariat assistant examination. He had a tiny Bluetooth device in his ear which the police had to pull out using a magnet. The other accused arrested so far are Vrujmohan Singh and Sivanshu Bharti alias Shinku.

Mr. Abhayanand said the Prevention of Money Laundering Act is likely to be invoked.
