Until now, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that is looking into the TSPSC paper leak case has questioned over 100 top scorers in the TSPSC exams.
The SIT had zeroed in on several people and had already arrested 49 of them. “It was recently found out that some suspects had also used the latest technology for committing the offense. Going by the pace at which the probe is going on in the case, the number of arrests in the TSPSC paper leak case may soon reach 100,” said CV Anand, Police Commissioner, Hyderabad.
TSPSC chairman Janardhan Reddy, Secretary Anita Ramachandran, and member B Linga Reddy have also been investigated by the SIT. The Enforcement Directorate is also investigating money laundering charges in the case. The statements of top TSPSC officials were also recorded by them.
SIT recently found that one of the accused allegedly used ChatGPT and electronic devices to share answers with candidates appearing in at least two exams conducted for recruitment in government departments, adding a new twist to the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) exam paper leak case.
Poola Ramesh, a Divisional Engineer with Telangana State Northern Power Distribution Company Limited (TSNPDCL), allegedly sold question papers for the Assistant Engineer (Civil) exam and also used the latest AI tool and electronic devices to assist some candidates in writing the Assistant Executive Engineer (AEE) and Divisional Accounts Officer (DAO) exams, according to the SIT investigation.
Ramesh allegedly shared the answers with at least seven candidates present in the exam hall via electronic devices. According to sources, this is the first time that the use of ChatGPT (Chat Generative Pre-training Transformer) and electronic devices has been revealed in the sensational case.
The SIT arrested Prashanth, Naresh, Mahesh, and Srinivas on Monday who allegedly took the exam using electronic devices.
The investigators are now attempting to determine how the candidates could enter the exam hall with electronic devices without being detected at the entrance. They were looking for an examiner who could assist them in entering the exam hall with the devices, which were Bluetooth micro earpieces. The examiner is also suspected of photographing question papers and sending them to Ramesh via WhatsApp 10 minutes after the exam began.
