HYDERABAD: The Crime Investigation Department (CID) officials, who are investigating the EAMCET-II medical question paper leak case, arrested the key accused S Bahadur Singh in Varanasi of Uttar Pradesh on Monday.
The accused was produced before the local court in Uttar Pradesh and is being shifted to the city on transit warrant. CID officials, who are associated with the investigation, said they detained Bahadur Singh in Varanasi on specific tip off and seized incriminatory material from him related to EAMCET-II question paper leak case.
“We will shift the accused to the city and will produce him before the court. Later, we will file a petition seeking custody of the accused for questioning him in connection with the offences,” CID officials said.
Few days ago, Bahadur Singh had filed a petition before the court in the city seeking anticipatory bail in the EAMCET-II question paper leak case, while the special teams of CID were searching for his whereabouts in UP.
However, the CID officials who collected information regarding involvement of Bahadur Singh in the case, have filed a counter pleading the court to dismiss his petition.
The court after hearing arguments from both counsels, dismissed the petition of accused. The CID officials have arrested around 50 accused from different places in connection with the offence and seized cash and immovable assets worth crores.
