Vikas Yadav, a resident of Prayagraj, is suspected to be the kingpin of the CTET paper leak incident. Further, he sold this paper to coaching centers in Etah, Mainpuri, and Firozabad for Rs 3 lakh each.

Not just Uttar Pradesh, but the academia of the entire country is facing the threat of a gang that specializes in leaking question papers of competitive examinations. Although the government has been trying to track down this gang, success is still far. The same gang appears to have hit again, by leaking the question paper of the Central Teachers' Eligibility Test (CTET) to be held at Agra, two hours before the examination. Earlier, the question paper had been sent to the WhatsApp numbers of candidates on January 31.

Agra based coaching center Apex Classes is suspected to have purchased the solved question paper from the gang at Prayagraj (Allahabad) for Rs 3 lakh and it was sold to the candidates for Rs 50,000 each.

According to the available information, the police have arrested five people including the coaching center owner Vikas Sharma, teacher Prabhat Sharma and three students Kuldeep Fauzdar, Than Singh, and Mohit Yadav.

Who is the kingpin of CTET paper leak incident?

Vikas Yadav, a resident of Prayagraj, is suspected to be the kingpin of this paper leak incident. He sold this paper to coaching centers in Etah, Mainpuri, and Firozabad for Rs 3 lakh each.

The arrested coaching center owner said that two youth from Etah had also ordered the question paper on Whatsapp and they were sent the paper.

Agra SSP Bablu Kumar said that the paper was leaked from Prayagraj and a police team was sent to Prayagraj for the arrest of the kingpin Vikas Yadav. Vikas was found in Pratapgarh and has been arrested. He has revealed a lot of other names who are now being searched.

 

Accused booked under section 420 IPC, IT Act, and UP Examination Law:

Another team has been sent to Etah to arrest the two CTET aspirants who purchased the paper. Mohit and Vikas Sharma have confessed their crime and the data has been recovered from their phone. The mobiles of the accused will be sent to the forensic lab now.

The information about the paper leak has been sent to the examination controller and the accused have been booked under section 420 IPC, IT Act, and UP Examination Law.

Sources claimed that Vikas Yadav is a native of Pratapgarh and runs a coaching center in Prayagraj from where he leaked the question paper by forming two WhatsApp groups of CTET aspirants and coaching center owners. The police is now analysing the forensic data to find out who all were linked to these groups.

Further, social activist Samir said that such paper leaks are a mockery of our system. If the papers continue to leak in this brazen manner, then the honest aspirants will never be able to show their real potential. He demanded that the perpetrators of this crime should be given the strictest punishment so that nobody else dares to leak question papers again.

He praised the quick action of the Agra police in arresting all the accused and said that the SSP's alacrity in solving the crime has saved the future of thousands of young CTET aspirants.

Bhartiya Muslim Vikas Parishad Chairman Sami Aghai said that the government employee who originally leaked the question paper should also be found and arrested. If necessary, CBI should be involved in the case so that every single person involved in this leak is brought to the book.
