UP Police Paper Leak: The Uttar Pradesh Police Recruitment and Promotion Board (UPPRPB) has dismissed the rumours of a paper leak in the UP Police Constable Recruitment Examination 2024, which was held on February 17 and 18.

The board also urged the public not to fall for such misleading claims and assured that the examination was conducted with utmost integrity and transparency.

According to the UPPRPB, around 48 lakh candidates appeared for the examination across 2385 centres in the state. The board said that the examination was conducted peacefully and cleanly in all four shifts on both days, under the supervision of senior police and administration officials. The board also thanked the candidates for their cooperation and discipline during the examination.

However, the UP Police also took strict action against those who tried to adopt or plan unfair means in the examination. The police said that they arrested or detained at least 287 people in the state, including examinees, solvers, solver gang members, and paper leak suspects. The arrests and detentions were made by the district police and the Special Task Force (STF) with the help of local intelligence. The police also seized mobile phones, SIM cards, Bluetooth devices, and other gadgets from the accused.

Some of the major arrests and detentions were reported from Firozabad, Prayagraj, Ballia, Ghazipur, Mau, Varanasi, Kanpur, Chitrakoot, Gorakhpur, Sant Kabir Nagar, and Siddharthnagar. The police said that they are investigating the sources and networks of these cheating and paper leak gangs and will take further action against them.

The UPPRPB is expected to release the answer key and the result of the examination soon on its official website. The candidates are advised to check the website regularly for updates and avoid any rumours or fake news. The board also said that it will take strict legal action against those who spread false information or create confusion among the candidates and the public.
