PANGIN, Apr 16: A preliminary investigation report on the alleged question paper leakage of UDC, LDC and MTS examination conducted in Siang district in August-September 2017 was today submitted by the Investigating Officer, Police Station, Pangin.

The report states that Omoty Karpuk, a JT (SSA) presently posted at Govt Hr Sec School, Boleng who was an invigilator in Govt Hr Sec School, Pangin during the examination had kept one copy of the question paper of UDC exam in her possession after completion of the written exam of UDC on 19th August, 2017.

The question paper was then taken from her house by Kamin Megu, a teacher presently posted at KGVB, Motum, Mebo sub-division, East Siang district and who was one of the candidates in the exam. Megu then further shared it with Kaling Taki, an office staff at Horticulture College, Pasighat who also appeared in the exam.

It has been stated that images of the question paper including that of a boy holding the allegedly leaked question paper which were widely circulated in social media were then photographed by Kaling Taki and exchanged it with Daniel Eko, allegedly a member of the Siang District Students’ Union, who further shared it with Takiang Pabin, an advocate.

A written examination for recruitment of UDC, LDC and MTS and subsequent computer test for UDC, LDC and viva voce for MTS was conducted last year during August-September. In the course of the recruitment process allegations were made claiming leakage of question paper of UDC and certain photographs were uploaded and circulated in social media forums. To unearth the facts, an FIR against unknown individuals was lodged by Deputy Commissioner Siang on 6th October last year.

Earlier, a petition was filed by Daniel Eko, one of the accused, in the High Court against the ongoing recruitment process. (DIPRO)
