PGI Exam fraud gang used Ventriloquism for cheating

CHANDIGARH: A training in ventriloquism — a handy tool for new age comedians to change their voice and make it look as if coming from elsewhere — may have helped the seven girls who went as decoy medical students disguise their communication with the PGI paper leak scam accused, P Guirivi Reddy, on Saturday, said top officials of the CBI.

"When we caught the girls, there was a lot of humming noise and cheek movements that looked suspicious in the rooms. It suggests that they had practised the art of talking by hiding their lip movements," said CBI DIG Mahesh Aggarwal.

On Saturday, the CBI had recovered a combination of mobile phone and bluetooth accessory from the girls' undergarments and tresses. According to the investigating agency, these girls, who were communicating from their separate examination centres with Reddy, had restricted their communication to a fixed set of words and monosyllables.

Ventriloquism is even a part of mimicry subject in art courses in Potti Sreeramulu Telugu University's curriculum in Andhra Pradesh. The agency, however, refused to divulge details of the ventriloquist whose services could have been used by Reddy.
