The police had claimed that the gang was very well organised. Two members of the gang used to go to the examination centre, scan the paper with their phones and send it to a control room.
People sitting in the control room used to solve the paper and give answers to other students who would be seated in other centres through phone.
The police told the court that the exam was conducted by AIIMS at 156 centres all over India and the hard copy of the question paper was recovered on January 8.
