Bihar CTET exam arrest - PC : Amar Ujala
Bihar Police arrested 12 people, including two women, for allegedly appearing in the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET)-2024 and solving the exam on behalf of other candidates at various examination centres in Darbhanga district, police said.

Darbhanga SSP Jagunath Reddy told reporters on Sunday, "Nine arrests were made from different centres under Laheriasarai police station's jurisdiction, while two were apprehended from a centre under Sadar police station, and one person was arrested from a centre under Bahadurpur police station."

The impersonation was detected through biometric fingerprint scans of candidates at the examination centres, police said.

Police took action based on complaints filed by invigilators and administrators. Cases have been registered against the imposters, and their interrogation is on. Police are also gathering information about the genuine candidates.

Sources said police are also investigating whether the arrested are linked to any interstate cheating syndicate. The CTET is conducted annually on a national level for candidates seeking teaching positions in the government sector. CTET Answer Key July 2024 is all set to release soon. Candidates, who appeared for the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) July 2024 exam conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on July 7, 2024, should keep in mind that the board also will issue both CTET Answer Key July 2024 and cutoff on the official website (ctet.nic.in).
While the CTET cut-off marks will be different for all categories, candidates who belong to the general category need to secure a minimum of 60 per cent marks whereas those who belong to the SC, ST, and OBC category need to score at least 55 per cent. It should be mentioned that the board will release the CTET category-wise cut-off list on its official website after issuing the scorecard.
