Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) director PC Sharma on Wednesday denied absolving the Indian Institutes of Management in the leakage of question papers for the Common Admission Test (CAT).

Investigations "so far" had not found any evidence to indicate the IIMs were involved in the paper leak, he told reporters in Chennai.

The agency also had some "incredible evidence" indicating the kingpin in the affair was also involved in leaking question papers of other all-India examinations, and even those for selecting entrants to the judicial services.

He also denied the Congress party allegations that the CBI had fabricated evidence in the corruption scandal involving former minister Dilip Singh Judeo to implicate Amit Jogi, son of Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Ajit Jogi.

The CBI chief was in Chennai to meet agency officials in the south and coordinate a large number of cases the agency is probing.
