HYDERABAD: IPS officer Safeer Karim, who was caught redhanded copying in UPSC Civil Services (Main) exam in Chennai on Monday, scored high in the ethics paper of the Civil Services-2014 exam.
Ethics paper tests the integrity of a candidate. By scoring high in the paper, Safeer managed to secure an all-India rank of 112.
Safeer, who completed engineering in electronics, scored top percentile in CAT, but instead of pursuing MBA, went to Vajiram and Ravi Academy in Delhi for civil services coaching. After learning the tricks in Delhi, he returned to Kerala and opened his own civil services coaching centres, Karim’s La Excellence in Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram.
Safeer secured 112 rank in the 2014 Civils exam in his third attempt. An All India Service (AIS) officer, who is Safeer’s batchmate, told TOI that the Kerala native had scored high in the ethics, integrity and aptitude paper, which had enabled him to secure a good rank.
“The ethics paper was introduced by UPSC in 2013 to test integrity of a candidate. Safeer’s case is the classic example of how the paper failed to test integrity of a candidate, who later went on to commit a fraud to shame the entire AIS officers’ fraternity. He had scored 108 in the 250-mark paper in General Studies-4 (ethics, integrity and aptitude) paper. His scores in other three General Studies papers were comparatively less,” an IRS officer, who too appeared in the UPSC Civil Services Examination-2014, said.
Safeer had secured 772 out of 1,750 marks in written exams and 178 out of 275 in the interview, with a cumulative of 950 out of 2,025 marks.
Not just AIS officers, even directors of coaching centres condemned Safeer’s shameful act. “It is highly condemnable that somebody who scored so well in the ethics paper has been found adopting such unethical means to be an IAS officer. The government must initiate CBI probe into the issue to ensure that justice is delivered,” KS Rao, director of KS Rao IAS Academy, said.
Expressing shock over an IPS officer resorting to hi-tech copying in UPSC Civils exam, director of another prominent coaching centre in Himayatnagar said, “It is an irony that someone who scored 108 marks in the subject, took the unethical route just to be an IAS officer.”
