Law enforcers have arrested two people on charge of cheating admission seekers regarding question paper leak of entry test of Dhaka University (DU).

A web-based crime investigation team of Detective Branch (DB)-Cyber & Special Crime unit (north) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police arrested them after conducting drives in Dhaka, Joypurhat and Bogura districts.
The arrestees are Annafiul Nafiz Iqbal, 23, son of Sabuj Ahmed of Joypurhat’s Panchbibi upazila, and Md Asif Talukdar, reports UNB.
Of them, Annafiul is a second year student of Mohipur Hajji Mohsin Government College in Joypurhat.
DMP’s additional commissioner (DB) Mohammad Harun-Or-Rashid revealed this information at a press conference at his office in the capital’s Mintoo Road on Sunday.
Posing as security in-charge of Education Ministry and opening a fake Facebook account after Cyber Teens Foundation founder Md Sadat Rahman, arrestee Asif uploaded posts on the Facebook asking admission seekers to contact him through Telegram to have question paper of the Friday’s entry test of DU, he said.
Similarly, the college student Annafiul also posted on the Facebook asking the admission aspirants to pay Tk 20, 000 in advance to avail the question paper of ‘B’ (Arts, Law and Social Science faculties) unit, he said, adding that the arrestee also asked the question paper seekers to pay rest Tk 30, 000 after the examination.
Arrestee Annafiul embezzled Tk 10 lakh from the admission seekers through cheating the admission seekers, the DB officer said.
The DU authorities assured the admission candidates that the question papers were not leaked, saying it as ‘rumour’.
Annafiul and Asif were arrested after the DU authorities and the Cyber Teens Foundation founder filed two separate cases against them, the DB chief added.
