The Bihar Staff Selection Commission (BSSC) question paper leak case appears to be getting murkier, with one more IAS officer facing imminent arrest.

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the case has reportedly despatched its team to New Delhi to hunt down the absconding official, who is believed to be hiding in the national capital.

The 1991-batch IAS officer, C K Anil, is currently posted as an officer on special duty at the Bihar Staff Selection Commission. The SIT had issued two notices to Anil to appear before agency chief Manu Maharaj, and explain his conduct.

Anil has been charged with facilitating the escape of his senior officer Sudhir Kumar, who was the then chairman of BSSC when the question papers of the recruitment examinations were leaked in January this year.

“Sudhir Kumar, the 1987-batch IAS officer, was arrested from Hazaribagh last month, but following intense investigation, the involvement of C K Anil was also found to be true. It was against this backdrop that the SIT served him notices through mail, and also posted it to his official and residential addresses. But neither did he respond ever nor appear before the SIT. He has now gone underground,” an official said.
