Russian acchackers hired to crack JEE and GMAT exams, 6 arrested
The Indian Express Delhi|January 06, 2022
THE DELHI Police's Cyber Cell has busted a massive online examination hacking racket and arrested six people who were allegedly helping aspirants cheat in GMAT and JEE entrance exams across the country.

According to police, the accused had hired Russian hackers who developed a software to hack computers at examination centres remotely. The software was developed in a way that it couldn't be detected by proctors.

The gang took Rs 8-10 lakh from a candidate for JEE exams and Rs 6-8 lakhs for GMAT exams. They made money to the tune of Rs 50-60 crore. The CBI is investigating the JEE exam hacking scam.

Over 10 days, the Delhi Police arrested hackers, exam solvers, trainers and coaching institute owners involved in the scam. One of the accused is also wanted by the CBI and Haryana police. The main accused, Raj Teotia (33), has allegedly been running the racket since 2019. Police said he went to Russia to meet and hire hackers for the gang, and also invited them to India during the lockdown to set up the software.
