A CBI Special Court here on Friday convicted a former administrative officer of Tuberculosis Research Centre, Chennai, and his son on charges of fraudulently leaking a question paper to pass a test for a position in the centre and cheating the organisation.

According to the prosecution, the accused V Adhikesavan, who was working as an administrative officer of the centre, run by the Indian Council of Medical Research, had abused his position and leaked the question paper for the recruitment test for a technician post to his son A Vijay Anand. After Anand was selected for the post, Adikesavan had further abused his position, he issued a circular by violating the ICMR recruitment rules and by inserting a clause in the circular as ‘desirable experience’ to accommodate his son who did not have the experience for the post.

The CBI had booked Adhikesavan and his son Vijay Anand under charges of conspiracy and cheating.

After the trial, the Special Court judge S Malathi convicted both the accused and sentenced them to one-year rigorous imprisonment.
