HYDERABAD: As many as seven minor boys were booked on Thursday alone for impersonating as students and appearing for class-X SSC examinations from across the city. While five boys were detained in Rein Bazar police limits, two boys were detained in Chandrayanagutta police limits. 


Mathematics paper-I of class X examination was held from 9.30 am to 12.15 pm on Thursday. Inspector Y Prakash Reddy said that a minor boy impersonated as a genuine candidate and appeared for the examination held at a school in Barkas. 


“Minutes after the exam started the invigilator noticed that the minor student was not a genuine candidate based on hall ticket and picture and he indulged in impersonating. Immediately, the officials alerted the police by detaining the students,” the inspector said. 


Based on complaint from officials, police registered cases and detained two minors in connection with the incidents. 


Similarly, the Rein Bazar police detained five minor boys for impersonating as genuine students and having appeared for class X exam. During the verification, the invigilators noticed the minors and detained them. Though those indulging in such forms of malpractices are caught regularly, officials maintain that proxies do not try too hard to mimic appearance of the real candidates.

They are usually caught when photo on hall tickets is cross checked with photo registers with invigilators. To establish the case further in some cases, officials are forced to send handwriting samples of the candidate and the impersonater to the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL). 


“Since photos are printed and not stuck or stapled to hall tickets, they cannot change photo on the hall ticket. If they want to, it is a elaborate procedure. Besides, five staff persons are given photo registers. The only thing proxies can do is to come, sit in examination hall. They get caught during the verification process,” said a Regional Inspection Officer (RIO). The students were asked to be at the examination hall 15-minutes before the exam.
