1,000 men arrested for cheating in police test

According to reports from the state police, the men had been hired to pass themselves off as the candidates.

About 1,000 men have been arrested in India for impersonating candidates in physical fitness tests for the police, BBC reports.

The arrests were made over the last 2 weeks, as documents produced by the men were found to have been falsified.

Last week, photos of parents helping their students cheat in the country went viral, more than 300 people, mostly parents, were arrested after the publication of the pictures.

This time around though, about 52,000 people had been selected for the physical fitness test, with the state government hoping to recruit around 12,000 police constables from their ranks.
