Anjul Jain who appeared at the LLB entrance at Law faculty on Sunday witnessed such incident. She wrote a letter to DU officer stating, “An aspirant whom I had known from my coaching class came to the hall with two cellphones. When we were asked to submit our phones before the exam, I saw him giving just one phone. He later went to the loo, and came back with the answer keys that were sent to him through an SMS.”

According to Jain this plan was in the making from past 15 days and several students from her coaching institutes were involved in it. Krishna Kanhaiya , an applicant who appeared for the political science entrance exam at Hindu college, alleged that the investigator had assisted a person in clicking photographs of the question paper 10 minutes before the test. In a letter to examination controller, he claimed, “The invigilator, instead of questioning the boy, asked him to click the photos and leave quickly before he gets caught.” In reply to his appeal, Principal Anju Srivastava of Hindu College said the college is investigating the allegations and would submit a report to Delhi University.
