Dozens of medical and engineering university students now face arrest warrants for their alleged roles in cheating during police officer entrance exams last month at the Metropolitan Police Bureau (MPB).

Criminal arrest warrants were issued Thursday for as many as 51 university students and a Bangkok city regulation enforcement officer, after MPB Training Centre chief Pol Colonel Uthen Nuiphin filed cheating complaints against Pathumwan-based officer Jiraphot Plaidoung and 347 applicants who were seeking to be police officers. 

Jiraphot surrendered to police on Tuesday and allegedly confessed to arranging the cheating in exchange for up to Bt400,000 per applicant. He was released on bail the following day.
