CID quizzing students for information on Chemistry paper leak

Criminal Investigation Department sleuths have started questioning students for information about the II PU Chemistry question paper leak. The police began questioning students a day after the Chemistry exam was held on April 12 (Tuesday).

“We are questioning students and getting valuable information. However, the CID will not take any action against the students as they were just beneficiaries in the incident and there is no criminality on their part,” said a senior police officer.

No conclusive evidence

In fact, the students helped CID officials with a lot of information, the officer said. The police have not been able to get any conclusive evidence to establish that all questions papers had been leaked.

Meanwhile, the sleuths intensified their hunt for Shivakumaraiah, the kingpin of the scam. “We are making all efforts to trace him. There are some inputs and he will be caught shortly,” the officer said.

Narayan S, one of the suspects in the case, moved a local court on Wednesday seeking anticipatory bail. Narayan runs the OCC Engineering Consultants in Sadashivanagar 18th Cross. The court will hear the case on Friday.

The CID police expressed displeasure over the way Shivakumaraiah was interrogated for his involvement in the II PU Physics question paper leak case in 2013.

The Tumakuru police had arrested him, but they failed to extract information about where and how he had leaked the question paper, an officer said.
