The leak of the question paper for the online test for recruitment of sub-inspectors in the civil police has put a question mark on the fairness of the examination and impartiality of the agency tasked with holding it.
The UP Police Recruitment and Promotion Board (UPPRPB) has already cancelled the online test. An FIR has been registered in the case and Special Task Force (STF) has been directed to conduct the investigation.
The investigation agencies are trying to find out if the question paper was leaked from an examination centre or the website of the agency was hacked.
After the question paper went viral on the social media on Monday evening, director general of police Sulkhan Singh decided to postpone the test to be conducted on July 25 and 26.
A UPPRPB officer said the candidates will be informed about the fresh test dates through SMS or e-mail. The candidates can download the admit card from the website of the UPPRPB.
