CBI, busting a nationwide racket behind leakage of question papers of CAT, had arrested the trio and another accused Arun Kumar Sinha from a hotel in Mahipaplpur in South-West Delhi on November 23.
Later the agency also booked them in two other cases of leakage of question papers of All India Pre-Medical Exam, 2002 and CBSE All India Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental Examination, 2003.
All the accused are presently in judicial custody.
Meanwhile, Metropolitan Magistrate Nivedita Sharma on Friday granted bail to CAT scam accused Bharat Bhushan, who was apprehended by Delhi Police outside the hotel from where the 'don' was arrested.
Appearing for the accused, advocate Ranjiv Ranjan Dwivedi said that 50 days had passed since his arrest and hence he was no longer required for the investigation.
On Wednesday, the court had given bail to three of Bhushan's alleged aides Rajesh Suchan, Arvind Kumar and Rahul Mahender.
