The Special Operations Group (SOG) of the Rajasthan police arrested an accused in the Rajasthan Administrative Services (RAS) pre-exam 2013 paper leak case from Ahmedabad on Wednesday night.
The accused identified as Dileep Pandey, 23, worked in the printing press where question papers for various competitive exams of the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) were printed.
Pandey had left the press and has been working in some other press since. He allegedly introduced the main accused of the RAS paper leak, who hails from Uttar Pradesh, with the printing press employees.
The UP man had bought the paper from two printing press employees, Mahavir Singh Rajpurohit (25) and Sunil Kumar Baburam (28), who were arrested earlier this month from Ahmedabad.
“Pandey introduced Rajpurohit and Baburam to the UP man who is the main accused in the paper leak case. Pandey is under five-day police custody,” said SOG superintendent of police Surendra Kumar.
The SOG has so far arrested Amrit Lal Meena, Sanjeev Meena, Hansraj Meena, RK Singh, Rajpurohit and Baburam in the case. According to the investigators, Pandey’s arrest would lead to the main accused who got the question paper and further sold it to RK Singh.
