2 booked for using digital devices in exam for posts

The invigilators of a government exam caught two candidates — a woman and a man — for using digital devices for cheating. A complaint has been registered with Gujarat University (GU) police in this connection. Police have seized two mobile phones and a smart watch from the duo. 

According to police, Uttar Gujarat Vij Company Ltd (UGVCL) had organized an examination for the posts of Vij Sahayak (electricity technician) on Sunday on GU premises from 11am to 12.30pm. During the period, supervisors observed a youth using a mobile phone for clicking pictures of the question paper and sending it through a messaging service, probably to get right answers. Officials also seized another phone from the candidate who had come from Sabarkantha for the exam. 

A woman from Mehsana was also caught for cheating in perhaps first of its kind case where she was found using a smart watch. "The supervisors first did not pay attention as the candidates were asked to keep the mobile phones outside the classroom. However, when the examinee was seen operating the watch more than twice, they got suspicious and realized that it was internet-enabled smart watch. Both mobile phones and the watch have been seized as evidences," said a GU police official.
