The District Crime Branch (DCB) on Thursday arrested one of the partners of Kamarajar Higher Secondary School at Bommakuttaimedu in connection with alleged malpractices during Plus Two public examination last month.

“S Arun Kumar of Thalami, Bommakuttaimedu, was arrested for his involvement in malpractices committed during the Plus Two Physics examination conducted on March 11,” DCB Inspector S Viswanathan said.

Employed as an assistant at the Primary Health Centre (PHC) in O Sowthapuram, Arun Kumar had been a partner in the school and acted in connivance with teachers to help students copy the answers.

DCB sources said Prabhu, a teacher with the Kamarajar HSS, was on examination duty at a school in Rasipuram. He had copied some of the one-word questions and sent them through MMS to Arun Kumar, who, in turn, passed them on to Saravanakumar, the Physics teacher of the school.

The police are on the lookout for some more persons, including Prabhu, who are at large at present.

The school was stripped of its examination centre status days after the malpractice came to light. A high-level probe was also ordered.

Following a complaint from the Director of Examinations, the DCB registered an FIR on April 3 and arrested three persons — Yuvaraj, physical education instructor, Murugesan, a watchman and Selvakumar, a Botany teacher — the next day, sources said.
