Cattle theft arrest, Mangaluru

Bengaluru: The Annapoorneshwari Nagar police have arrested a 30-year-old man for using an electronic device to cheat in the exam for Assistant Engineers for the Public Works Department (PWD).

Veerannagowda Devindra Chikkegowda, a resident of Jewargi in Kalaburagi District, has been identified as the accused.

According to sources, on Tuesday December 14, Chikkegowda attended the Karnataka Public Service Commission (KPSC) exam to recruit Assistant Engineers for the PWD at Nagarabavi’s St. John High School in Papareddypalya. A beep alerted the invigilator, exposing Chikkegowda.

The invigilator found that the candidate had attached an electronic device to his vest that had a switch when he was checked.

“Every 30 minutes, the candidate pressed the switch and made contact with someone outside. He could hear the voice through the device’s earphone, but he couldn’t communicate through it. He has been arrested under the Karnataka Education Act, the IT Act, and the IPC,” informed police.
