RPSC paper leak culprits arrested by the special operation group

July 31, 2014

The mastermind behind the leaking of Rajasthan Public Service commission (RPSC) exam paper has finally been

arrested in a joint operation involving Rajasthan police's special operation group (SOG) and the Bihar police. The

accused identified as R.K. Singh alias Mithlesh aka Verma, was arrested from Bhojpur district of Bihar at around

10:30 am after his name cropped up during the interrogation of Amit Meena, a Karauli-based lecturer, and other

members of his gang, who were taken into police custody earlier this month by the SOG.

The accused has also been suspected of providing papers of other competitive exams in many other parts of India,

although more information regarding the same is expected to come out during his further interrogation.

The RAS preliminary examination 2013 held by the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) was recently

cancelled after charges of malpractices were confirmed by an investigation squad. A senior SOG officer said that

they were on his trail for the last 15 days. On Monday night, Singh parked his car a few kilometre from the village and

walked to his acquaintance's house. The police waited for him throughout the night near the vehicle and caught hold

of him on Tuesday morning.

Now the main question is that whether any RPSC insider was helping the gang or if they were getting papers from

the printing press. The answer to this is expected to come out during further interrogation. Also, the RPSC chairman

Habib Khan Goran has been summoned to Jaipur by the SOG for verifying some facts which the agency came

across during the course of probe.

SP, SOG, Surendra Kumar said that they are interrogating the accused to ascertain the source of the papers and

other members of his gang and that the primary interrogation revealed that there were more people involved in the

inter-state gang and that they are tightening the noose around them also. Source: I.T.
