Engineering, Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test (Eamcet)-II was leaked as MBBS aspirants were privy to the question paper.
The matter began when a top Telangana police officer on Wednesday hinted that the Eamcet-II paper was leaked and at least 30 students benefited by accessing the question paper 48 hours prior to the entrance test.Crime Investigation Department (CID) and Telangana director general of police (DGP) Anurag Sharma teamed up to find out the culprit. The report is expected to be submitting by Thursday or Friday.
A top Telangana police officer, requesting anonymity, told reporters, "We suspect that the paper was leaked from the printing press in Delhi. However, we are still in the process of gathering evidence. As of now, four persons: Ramesh, Rajagopal, Vishnu and Tirumal were taken into custody and we are on the look out for a few others. The students were in possession of all the leaked question papers 48 hours prior to the Eamcet-II exam. The brokers took the students to Mumbai, Bengaluru and Kanigiri in Andhra Pradesh either by flight or road. After reaching there, they were put up at hotels where the question paper was given to the students along with the answer key. The brokers reportedly confiscated mobile phones of the students to prevent them from sharing the questions with fellow student, besides maintaining confidentiality."
According to the recent evidences the police is suspecting Rajagopal Reddy. Sources said, "It was a repeat offender, Rajagopal Reddy of Bengaluru, who yet again masterminded the racket in connivance with at least six other brokers and successfully laid his hands on the question paper. They, in turn, provided the paper to the select group of students. Rajagopal was arrested in the 2014 PG medical entrance question paper leak case too."
