The Army has cancelled an examination for pan-India recruitment of general duty personnel after the paper reportedly got leaked, officials said on Sunday.

Three persons have been arrested from Baramati, Pune, in connection with the case.

“The Army has zero tolerance towards corrupt practices in the recruitment process for selection of suitable candidates,” an official said.

Based on a proactive joint operation with the local police at Pune, a case of possible leakage of question paper prepared for Common Entrance Examination for Recruitment of Soldiers (General Duty) was reported last night, the official added.

While further investigations are underway, it was decided to cancel the examination to ensure transparency in the recruitment process, he added. — PTI
