Bihar Bluetooth Gang: The Bihar Police Constable Recruitment Exam is set for October 1, 2023. On Thursday, Bihar police discovered a significant scam in which a group was preparing to aid hopeful applicants in cheating on the exam. The gang attracted potential candidates who frequently used the neighbourhood gym for morning exercise and used them as pawns in exchange for a sizable quantity of money.
According to SP Yogendra Yadav, during raids at numerous places throughout Begusarai, the police detained five people and recovered a sizable amount of cutting-edge machinery and evidence. “We seized Rs. 1,95,000 in cash believed to belong to the candidates, 33 walkie-talkies, 16 Bluetooth devices, 6 mobile phones, one pen drive, and 136 admit cards,” the official reported.

According to the authorities, the group ran a cheating ring out of a tutoring facility called “Indian Physical Academy Sheikhantola, Ekbana.” On the neighborhood’s athletic fields, where young hopefuls met for running and other physical activities, they looked for suitable recruits. We detained their leader Sunil Kumar, a native of Deehi village in the Choudai PS region, after gathering intelligence for more than a week. Candidates paid their gang between 2-4 lakhs with the promise that they would help them pass the recruitment exam.
“After receiving the money, the gang gave the candidates electronic devices so they could cheat,” he continued. A receiving device would be concealed behind the candidates’ clothes, coupled to a small Bluetooth earpiece they would wear.
The ally would be positioned close to the testing location, using a walkie-talkie to communicate with the test-takers through the earpieces they were wearing. The walkie-talkie device we acquired has a range of about 100 metres, SP Yadav revealed. The candidate could have gotten past security and taken the test because of how little the earpiece was.
The Recruitment Racket
136 admit cards were found by the police during the raids, proving that these individuals chose to cheat to pass the exams, according to SP Yogendra. To capture these prospects, a special raiding force has been organised. He stated that if any of these candidates show up to the exam location, they will be arrested right away.
The police added that there’s a chance the gang operates in several areas of Bihar. Investigations conducted so far have shown that Patna is where the mastermind is based. “We’ve located another pseudonym, Pramod, who was active out of Patna and is thought to be the true gang’s mastermind. He is the one who supplies the exam question and answer sheets. We’ve given the Patna police squad this information, and a team from Begusarai has also been sent.
The police stressed that the Begusarai police squad blocked the entire plot and plan in order to prepare for the upcoming Bihar recruitment exam. “We had been keeping an eye on their activities and had been preparing for the raids for five days. The raid was carried out by a police force under the direction of DSP Shyam Kishor Ranjan, and Sunil, Gulshan, Rambabu, Abhay, and Bittu Kumar were all captured.
