JAIPUR: Thirty-eight persons have been arrested in various districts of Rajasthan for allegedly duping candidates appearing for the Rajasthan Eligibility Examination for Teachers (REET) by claiming that they could "leak" question paper for the exam conducted today.      

The accused, who are the members of different gangs, took lakhs of rupees from the candidates and provided them fake papers through Whatsapp and also circulated printed papers, police claimed. Twelve each were arrested from Bharatpur and Jhunjhunu, 8 in Jodhpur, 5 in Nagaur and one in Dausa under an operation by district police and SOG, Additional DGP (SOG and ATS) Alok Tripathi, who is monitoring the case, said.         

"No question which they provided to the candidates matches with the original paper of REET, therefore, it was not leaked," Tripathi said. Initial probe revealed links of the accused to Uttar Pradesh and Haryana and they are being interrogated, he said.           

Tripathi also appealed to the candidates to not pay heed to such gangs and inform the police so that such elements can be apprehended.
