In a breakthrough in the leakage of Common Admission Test (CAT) papers for Indian Institutes of Management, the CBI on Sunday night detained a lower-rung employee of Mumbai-based printing press, Institute of Banking Personnel Services (IBPS), who allegedly let out the question paper even as the role of IIM, Ahmedabad in the scam was being probed.

Highly-placed CBI sources said a lower rung employee took Rs 2 lakh bribe and leaked the paper from IBPS, a semi-government organisation responsible for printing CAT question papers.

The breakthrough, a week after the leakage, came when an accused identified the employee to the CBI team camping in Mumbai since Friday, the sources said.

The agency would be registering his statement after which a decision about arresting him would be taken, they said.
