Agra (U.P.), Mar 15: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s crackdown on cheating mafia seems to have taken a blind turn as a video has surfaced from an Agra university in which miscreants are seen helping students cheat while brandishing a gun.

The video shows students copying from textbooks while a gun-toting man stands in the room. The incident took place in Krishna Academy which is situated in Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar University in Agra where the examination for B.A. 1st year was underway. As per reports, the man was neither a student nor a staff member of the university. Vice-Chancellor Dr. Arvind Kumar Dixit has initiated an investigation into the matter and has said that the case would be probed with the help of police and administration.

The incident was first reported by a Shiv Sena minister who said that they received information regarding mass cheating in the said college through sources. Thereafter, some of the party workers reached the college and recorded the entire incident on camera.

Just a few days ago, Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma had held a meeting stating strict measures were in place and Special Investigation Team (SIT) would be keeping a close eye over examinations being held in the state.
