A dummy candidate has been arrested here for appearing for the online recruitment examination of the Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) and Assam Rifles in Maharashtra’s Aurangabad, police said on Friday.


The exam for the posts of constable in the CAPF and rifleman in Assam Rifles was held in the city on Wednesday, an official of the CIDCO police station said.

Officials overseeing the process found that a candidate appearing for the examination online from Shivgaon, Vaijapur was acting in a suspicious manner, he said.

On being frisked, the man was found carrying a mobile phone, transmitter and a bluetooth device, the official said.
