Five judges in Andhra Pradesh have been suspended for cheating on exam

Five judges were caught cheating in a written exam at the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh which has become a matter of great shame for the nation’s judiciary system. After the incident, the judges were promptly suspended by the High Court.

The judges were caught cheating on camera. They were copying from books and notes and each other.

The five judges are - Ajitsimha Rao, senior civil judge, Vijayender Reddy, second additional district judge of Ranga Reddy, M. Kistappa, senior civil judge of Ananthapur, Srinivasachary, senior civil judge of Bapatla and Hanumantha Rao, additional junior civil judge of Warangal. Two other advocates were also caught copying.

The judges sat for first-year LLM exams on August 24, 2010 at the Kakatiya University Arts College in Warangal town. After they had been caught red handed all the materials were confiscated by university invigilators and they were not allowed to continue.

Kakatiya University’s additional controller, N Manohar said that the candidates were taking their examination in Room No 102. At that time, a team under his lead went on a surprise visit and caught them red handed.

If these judges had passed the LLM examination they would have become eligible for promotions and increments.
