Now In The Delhi Market: Hi-Tech Vest That Helps Exam Cheats

The Bihar episode in which parents were caught scaling a building to help their children cheat became a huge embarrassment for India - at home and abroad. Now, BBC reports that students can buy all sorts of "devilishly cunning devices" from shops and websites to help them cheat.

The BBC report highlights the "cheater's vest" which has a tiny microphone near the neckline, connected with a wire to a cellphone receiver snuck into the hem, connected to the tiny bluetooth earpiece fitted with an antenna.

This device, bought in a Delhi shop, allows the cheater to communicate questions to an accomplice and receive answers.

Other devices mentioned in the report include the cheater's watch, cheater's tie, cheater's spectacles, and cheater's "blue" underwear!
