A youth has been arrested for cheating in IIT-JEE entrance exam with the help of a camera and a mobile device hidden in his shirt, police said on Sunday.

The examinee, Vikas Gupta, was yesterday caught cheating at a Barra-located exam centre by the principal of the school where the exam was being conducted, they said.

He was seeking answers from a solver in Allahabad with the help of a camera and mobile device placed discreetly in his shirt.

On a complaint lodged by the school’s principal in this regard, police yesterday arrested Gupta and questioned him.

Gupta told police he had a deal with Monu, a resident of Allahabad, that he would help him in clearing the entrance exam.

Monu, according to Gupta, had demanded Rs 3 lakh from him in lieu of providing answers. Police have sent a team to Allahabad to further probe the matter.
