Teenager Boy Arrested For Appearing In Jamia's Entrance Exam Instead Of Original Candidate

A teenager has been apprehended when he tried to appear in an entrance examination being held by the Jamia Millia Islamia University in place of another candidate, police said on Thursday. An official from the university said the boy, who tried to appear in the exam on Wednesday in place of the actual candidate, was wearing a mask and might have thought that the invigilator will not check his antecedents.

"He was asked to remove the mask and it was found that the photo on the admit card did not match the photo on the Aadhaar card of the candidate. The invigilator informed the superintendent who in turn informed the Controller of Examination and subsequently, a police complaint was filed," he said. The action was taken after a complaint was received on Wednesday from the Chief Proctor of Jamia Millia Islamia alleging that a minor boy has been found appearing in an examination for admission in B. Voc. (Solar Energy) course in place of another candidate, police said.
