Phar­macy test cheat­ing plot un­cov­ered

China Daily European Weekly - - NEWS DIGEST -

Po­lice have de­tained 10 peo­ple in Huainan, An­hui prov­ince, sus­pected of help­ing dozens of stu­dents cheat on last year’s na­tional ex­am­i­na­tion for li­censed phar­ma­cists. Nine sus­pects are from vo­ca­tional train­ing com­pa­nies in Jiangsu and An­hui prov­inces, while the other one, from Shan­dong prov­ince, is ac­cused of pro­vid­ing the cheat­ing de­vices. When in­spect­ing an ex­am­i­na­tion room in Huainan on Nov 18 — the first day of the two-day exam — po­lice no­ticed a fe­male ex­am­i­nee, sur­named Bu, star­ing at some­thing re­sem­bling an eraser. “We checked the ‘eraser’ and found it was ac­tu­ally a tiny de­vice with a dis­play screen that could re­ceive mes­sages,” said Gao Kun, a po­lice of­fi­cer from Huainan’s Shan­nan New District. “Twenty-six more ex­am­i­nees from mul­ti­ple prov­inces were later caught at the site for the same rea­son,” said Gao, who has been lead­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion team.
