Up to 10 Metro-North conductors and engineers were suspended from work last week amid an MTA Inspector General probe into safety test cheating, according to lohud.com.

A member of the Metro-North training department that administers the tests is said to have leaked the test to others, according to lohud.com.

The suspensions grew out of the indictments of 13 current and former MTA workers on charges that they cheated on safety tests last year. The workers were accused of sharing copies of the questions and answers before the tests. Metro-North officials confirmed the disciplinary action against employees, but would not provide details in a statement, according to lohud.com.

Sources say the engineers and conductors were listed "out of service" last week, according to lohud.com.
