One more broker was today arrested by Telangana CID, taking the total number of those held in the EAMCET-II question paper leak case to 20.
"In the Telangana State EAMCET-II-2016 (Medical) question paper leakage case, on Tuesday one broker Rajesh Rajasekhar, a native of Coimbatore, was arrested," CID Inspector General of Police Soumya Mishra said in a release.
In Coimbatore Rajesh works as educational consultant.
"He secured six students and they were given to practice the two sets of leaked TS EAMCET-II entrance exam question papers in the camp conducted at Kolkata", the CID officer said.
She further added "Efforts are on to apprehend the other brokers and kingpins of the case."
On July 25, the CID had registered a case under relevant sections of IPC and other provisions of the Andhra Pradesh Public Examinations (Prevention of Malpractices and Unfair means) Act-1997, after it found in its preliminary inquiry that there was prima facie a case for registering an FIR.
"The probe also revealed that students appearing for TS EAMCET-II-2016 (Medical) examination from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh were taken to camps set up in at least five cities about two to three days prior to the exam and given practice with the leaked copies of two question papers consisting of 320 questions with correct answers", the CID had earlier said.
