DECCAN CHRONICLE | DC Correspondent
Hyderabad: The police on Wednesday booked three more employees of the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) in connection with the question paper leak case.
The trio, including a woman, scored over 100 marks in the Group I exam conducted in October 2022 after procuring the question paper from the main accused P. Praveen Kumar and A. Rajashekar, the police said.
The police are ascertaining if the trio had paid them for the favour.
Sources, however, said that the source of the question paper leak is still under probe and the police are verifying if the accused were the only source of the leak. They are also probing if an aspirant circulated the paper among others by tracking the money trail.
The special investigation team (SIT) has issued notice to more individuals who scored more than 100 marks in the entrance exam to ascertain if any of them had leaked the paper. They are also verifying the relations between the candidates and the main accused.
Confidential section incharge Shankara Laxmi of the commission, who was questioned on Tuesday and clarified that she was unaware of how the scam unfolded, is yet to get a clean chit. She alleged that the accused stole the User ID and password without her knowledge while fixing a technical glitch in her computer.
