An attempt at cheating was made in Uttar Pradesh recently by an aspiring Sub-Inspector of Police. The candidate had a plan in motion with two tiny earpieces and a wig to hide wires and other gadgets while appearing for police exams. But Uttar Pradesh police officials appear to be well versed with these tactics – and his attempt at cheating was soon foiled.
A video of police personnel uncovering the candidate’s scheme was shared by IPS officer Rupin Sharma on Twitter. The video showed how crafty the candidate had been in his attempt to subvert the system. He had two tiny, wireless earpieces connected to a chip hidden inside his wig, nicely tucked onto his head.
“Uttar Pradesh mein Sub-Inspector ke exam mein cheating ke shaandar jugaad (Great hacks to cheat during Uttar Pradesh sub-inspector exam),” wrote IPS Rupin Sharma while sharing the video.

Police officials had difficulty taking out the earpieces inserted deep inside the candidate’s ears. A narrator said in the video that the person was caught with the use of metal detectors. Had he passed the detection, it would have been difficult to catch him.
Commenting on the IPS officer’s post, a few people wondered how the police pulled out the earpieces. Some were just awed by the length the candidate went to cheat — instead of preparing for the test.
“Too much effort, I would better prefer studying,” said one user.

A person said that the candidate did not know that the administration had anticipated such attempts and made arrangements to foil them.
चीटिंग करने वाले को नहीं पता था एग्जाम हॉल में पहले से एक ऐसी डिवाइस लगी रहती है जो इस प्रकार की तकनीकी चीज आने या अलग से नेटवर्क संपर्क होने पर सूचना उपलब्ध करा देती है।

Some, however, joked that the candidate deserved to be “especially” hired by the police.
Isko toh especially hire karna chahiye, aisa talent police mein ho tabhi inside data niklegi cartels par
