Bengaluru: Irregularities have come to the fore in another government recruitment exam conducted in the state.

Malleshwaram police have arrested two persons, including a guest lecturer, for leaking the questions of the examination for assistant professor posts in government colleges.

Soumya (32), a guest lecturer from Mysuru, and a Bengaluru-based man were arrested for allegedly leaking 18 questions of the examinations conducted by the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) in March this year.

Police said that Sowmya sent 18 questions related to a geography paper to a few persons on her WhatsApp, one hour before the exams were to start. The questions were widely circulated thereafter.

A complaint was lodged at the Malleshwaram police station by the KEA Executive Director Ramya after the authority received several complaints from aspirants about the leak.

Based on the investigation, Sowmya was arrested on Sunday, police said.

As per police, until recently, Soumya worked as a guest lecturer of geography at a college in Mysuru. She completed her MSc and doctorate degree from Mysuru University. Reports said that she had resigned from the guest lecturer post for a post-doctoral fellowship.
