Mobile internet services suspended in Rajasthan for 2 days

Jaipur: To prevent cheating in constable recruitment examinations, Rajasthan will go offline for two consecutive days on 14 and 15 July. This would be first time that internet services would be blocked in the entire state for a competitive exam.

Nearly 15 lakh candidates will appear for the exam, which will be conducted today and on Sunday. An online exam was held earlier but had to be cancelled after the police busted a gang for helping candidates cheat.

The police have taken permission from the government to suspend internet services in five km radius of an examination centre for two hours each in every shift. The examination will be held in four shifts over two days on Saturday and Sunday. The police informed Rajasthan high court about unprecedented security arrangements in response to a petition.
