A local court on Saturday extended the police remand of four of the 15 accused arrested in the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research entrance exam racket. The remaining 11 accused were sent in judicial custody till December 1.


Judicial Magistrate Parinder Singh, at whose residence in Sector 39 the accused were produced, sent main accused P Gurivi Reddy in police custody for six days and Bharat Chand, Jagdish and P Siddhartha in police custody for two days.

Reddy would be taken to Hyderabad to identify persons involved in the racket, it was learnt.
Meanwhile, seven young women caught while appearing at various examination centres in the city would be presented in the court on Monday for taking their handwriting samples.

The CBI had moved an application where they had asked for the sample of handwriting of all the girls who were caught red handed giving the examination. On Monday their samples will be taken and then compared with the documents that have been seized by the CBI from PGIMER. The application was allowed by the Judicial Magistrate.
The CBI argued that as of yet the main accused had not specifically named the hideouts and the CBI needed more time with him to identify more involved in this racket. Apart from this the CBI said that the other three taken into custody also need to be questioned on the involvement of the other beneficiaries, the destination of picking the special clothes.

Late on Wednesday night, my smartphone flashed the caller's name 'Salim Khan'. I presumed it was Khan wanting to inform me of yet another exciting snake rescue or a tragic snakebite. But my heart sank. It was not Khan but a panicky lady blabbering at the other end. I thought my worst fears had come true: after having rescued hundreds of venomous snakes from tricky spots, I thought this time Khan had himself been bitten by one and that his relatives were informing me. However, it was not exactly a venomous snake that had struck Khan. It was MAN, a species that has proved deadlier than the most toxic of slithering serpents.  Writes VIKRAM JIT SINGH
