They had the bluetooth device stitched to their shirts and a minute earphone was given to one of the accused.
Punia, along with Kumar and Pratap, the latter two posing as medical students, entered the hall with their gadgets. As soon as the three got the question papers, they clicked pictures of the papers and sent it to an email id of Bhisham Singh, 27, who was operating a computer in a rented accommodation outside the hall.
Singh downloaded the question paper and took out printouts.
Mohit Choudhary, 23, who hails from Bulandshahr (Uttar Pradesh) was the gang leader.
