Rajasthan police bust racket using ‘fake Aadhaar’, computer hacking to help candidates clear exam

In a case of a major security breach in Aadhaar authentication, Rajasthan's special operations group (SOG) has so far identified seven centres where a gang was cloning candidates' fingerprints to help at least 25 of them to take exams through a proxy (dummy) candidate. Devendra Jat, the mastermind of the whole operation, is a resident of Palwal in Haryana. He has been absconding since the SOG started conducting raids in the case. The police arrested 10 people in the alleged case of cloning of fingerprints to destabilise the UIDAI's biometric-based security system. This case reveals the fresh vulnerabilities in India's Aadhaar project. The Uttar Pradesh police, earlier, announced that they had busted a Lucknow-based gang, which stole the fingerprints of authorised Aadhaar enrolment operators.
