Reports say that, a 24-year-old man was arrested for allegedly using a Bluetooth device in an army recruitment examination in Odisha’s Gopalpur, police said.

Earlier in the year 2020 the Delhi High Court, while dismissing a petition filed by Delhi University student allegedly caught cheating during the examination, observed that “copying and cheating” in examinations is like a “pandemic which can ruin society and the educational system of any country”.
“Copying and cheating in examinations is like the plague. It is a pandemic which can ruin society and the educational system of any country. If the same is left unchecked or if leniency is shown, the same can have a deleterious effect.
For any country’s progress, the integrity of the educational system has to be infallible,” observed a single judge bench of Justice Pratibha M. Singh.
The observation came in while the court was hearing a petition filed by Aarzoo Aggarwal, a final year student of B.A. (H) Economics at DU’s Daulat Ram College challenging the University’s order cancelling her examinations for the entire semester.
