ROURKELA:A candidate of Bihar was caught with an electronic communication gadget before entering the examination hall to appear for the Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) test at the RIMS centre here.

The youth, Kankanchan Kumar of Nalanda district in Bihar, was forwarded to court by RN Pali Police on Thursday.

He had brought the gadget hidden in a specially stitched cloth with an intention of malpractice.

RN Pali police station IIC RC Dora said Kumar had disintegrated the mobile phone into smaller parts and all the parts were connected with wires that were cleverly hidden in his T-shirt, which was specially tailored for the purpose.

The IIC said he was booked under Section 66 of IT Act and various other sections of IPC.

Police said the cheating attempt came to light after the mobile phone malfunctioned during testing and the youth went to get it repaired at a mobile repairing shop at Panposh.

Kumar claimed that he had given `25,000 to one Pawan Kumar of Bihar, who had made the arrangement and was supposed to help him during the examination.
