SIT finds that ChatGPT, electronic devices were used to cheat in TSPSC exams

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) 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.

As a result of the arrests made on Monday, the total number of people arrested in the case has gone up to 49.

Ramesh obtained the leaked Assistant Engineer (Civil) exam question paper from another accused, Poola Ravi Kishore, a junior assistant in the electricity department. Ramesh then sold the leaked question paper to approximately 25 candidates for between Rs 25 lakh and Rs 30 lakh each. The exam took place on March 5.

Ramesh used the latest AI technology and microelectronic devices to assist aspirants in the AEE and DAO exams, which were held earlier on January 22 and February 26.

After receiving the question paper on his phone from the exam center via an examiner, he and four others used ChatGPT to obtain correct answers and relayed them to candidates in the exam hall via Bluetooth earbuds. Ramesh allegedly struck a deal with each candidate for Rs 20 lakh to Rs 30 lakh.
