TS BSP chief slams lax security at TSPSC office

HYDERABAD: Bahujan Samaj Party’s (BSP) Telangana chief R.S. Praveen Kumar, a retired IPS officer, flagged the investigation into the TSPSC question paper leak, asking why the commission’s premises was not locked, giving the accused a chance to steal the papers.

“The TSPSC building is the crime scene and the first thing to be done after the scam came to light that it had to be protected and barred from the entry of others, at least in view of the gravity of the crime that took place. But even after the scam came to light, people were operating from that building. This itself shows how the investigation is going on and what the outcome would be,” he told Deccan Chronicle.

Praveen Kumar, who served as the DCP (Central Crime Station) from 2007-09, under which the SIT functions, said that in such cases, the standard procedure is to round up whoever is heading the organisation.

“Why is the secretary or the board members or other TSPSC staffers are not even being questioned, forget arrested?” he said.

He also doubted claims whether the computers were upgraded since the scam broke out, positing it may have been a ploy to wipe out evidence. “The investigation is completely going as per the instructions from Pragati Bhavan, to save big names,” he said.

He also questioned, given that the Chief Minister’s Office or minister K.T. Rama Rao are not involved as per their claims, why the government was hesitating to hand over the case to the CBI. “This case is much beyond the scope of the SIT and with a clear aim to dilute it, the investigation is given to them,” he said.
