MUMBAI/AURANGABAD: Aurangabad police on Wednesday arrested 27 engineering students, teachers and a Shiv Sena corporator for operating an exam cheating racket from the house of the corporator. The principal and the trustees of the college were also arrested. Video footage of the raid has gone viral on social media.

The second year civil engineering students from Sai Institute of Engineering and Technology were found filling the answer sheets for an exam that was conducted on Tuesday in Shiv Sena corporator Sitaram Sure’s residence. They were copying answers from textbooks. The students had kept their answer sheets blank while appearing for the exam the previous day.

Sure’s son Kiran, too, is pursuing engineering from the same college. He, along with the other students and teachers, came up with this plan. The college management was also reportedly involved in the racket. Every student was charged Rs 5,000 per paper for rewriting, while the principal facilitated the business under the pretext of delay from the university in collecting the answer sheets. 

Police are now investigating the role of university officials in the case.
