ASP caught cheating in an exam to become an IAS
An absolute shocker for the invigilators when they caught an Assistant Superintendent of Police from Tirunelveli cheating during a Civil Services (main) examination in Chennai on Monday.
According to the reports, the ASP was actually getting answers from his wife through a bluetooth device as he appeared for the exam at Presidency Girls Higher Secondary School.
An IPS officer on probation Shabir Karim was allegedly talking to his wife based out of Hyderabad. She was reportedly dictating answers to her husband over phone. After the revelation, both husband and wife are in custody.
According to the police, Karim was writing the exam as he wanted to be an IAS officer. He had been selected for the IPS in 2014 and was undergoing training at Nanguneri subdivision of Tirunelveli.
He has been under Section 420 of the IPC (cheating and dishonesty). Sources said he was likely to be dismissed as he was still in the probationary period. The police sought the Hyderabad police’s help to arrest his wife.>
