Karnataka: PSI exam topper took Munnabhai route to cheat, was gunman | Bengaluru News

KALABURAGI: The Criminal Investigation Department (CID), which is looking into malpractices in the job exam for police sub-inspectors (PSI), found out that the Hyderabad-Karnataka region topper of the test used a bluetooth device to cheat, Munnabhai MBBS-style.
Hayyali Desai, who cleared the PSI exam held in October 2021, is now in CID custody. Desai, a PSI, was posted as the gunman of Afzalpur Congress MLA MY Patil.
After questioning Desai, CID on Friday morning arrested Afzalpur block Congress president Mahanthesh Patil for allegedly supplying Desai and another candidate, Vishal Shiroor, with the bluetooth devices. Shiroor too was arrested.
Desai and Shiroor had written their test at a centre in Jnaya Jyothi English Medium School. The school’s president, Divya Hagaragi, is wanted in the case. Hagaragi is also a BJP women’s cell leader. Her husband, who the investigators said was not cooperating, is in CID custody along with three candidates and three invigilators.
There are allegations that some candidates forged their OMR answer sheets with the help of some invigilators at the exam centre.
Mahantesh Patil was arrested on Friday at a function hall where he was planning to organise a mass marriage on April 23. The total number of arrests made in the case is 12 now.
