According to officers, the STF had been investigating inputs of gangs concerned in fraudulent actions in exams for the UP Police Recruitment and Promotion Board.

“The Noida STF accordingly reached the exam centre and arrested the three people involved in the episode,” it mentioned in a press release. 

Those held have been recognized as racket kingpin Bunty Kumar, exam candidate Harendra Singh and Avinash Kumar, who would have sat for the exam as a substitute of Harendra Singh, the company mentioned. 

According to the police, Bunty advised investigators that he has been engaged in such exam fraud since 2017 and charged 2 lakh to 5 lakh from candidates relying on the exam.
