It has come to light that a number of middlemen located across states leaked the test questions ahead of the March 27, 2022, written exams for the position of Constable in the Himachal Pradesh Police.
It has been claimed that middlemen with offices across Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, and Punjab were working in an organized way to leak the test papers.
