It had  been confirmed by the Police that the question paper of the entrance examination had been leaked but still IOM has not responded on this matter.

Police continued the operation and arrested 19 more suspects from exam centres in Chabahil, Swoyambhu and Kamalpokhari.

According to Police, the examinees used hi-tech wireless devices to relay questions to racketeers, including doctors, experts and educational consultancy operators, who helped the test takers write their papers.

Android mobile phone sets, laptops, bluetooth devices and wireless ear plugs are among the gadgets recovered by police. Most of the arrestees, who helped the examinees cheat, are Indian.
