Enforcement Directorate Arrests Five in Rajasthan Teacher Recruitment Exam Paper Leak Case
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has made significant progress in its investigation into an alleged teacher recruitment exam paper leak case in Rajasthan. On January 11, the ED arrested five individuals – Suresh Kumar alias Suresh Sau, Vijay Damore, Peeraram, Pukhraj, and Arun Sharma – under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). These arrests mark a significant development in the ongoing probe.
The ED revealed that Arun Sharma played a crucial role in the paper leak scandal. He allegedly provided leaked papers to 29 candidates who were appearing for the senior teacher 2nd grade competitive examination in exchange for a payment of Rs 2 lakh per candidate. It is also alleged that Arun Sharma paid Rs 10 lakh in advance to Anil Meena, another individual involved in the case, to obtain the leaked papers.
Further investigations by the ED implicated Peeraram in the paper leak. It was found that he provided his own bus for facilitating and tutoring the candidates with the leaked question paper’s correct answers. This was done under the instructions of Suresh Sau, who was actively involved in the paper leak case, allegedly for a promised amount of Rs 1 crore.
Pukhraj, another individual involved in the case, arranged the stay of the candidates and assisted in providing solutions to the leaked question paper. He also appeared in the examination himself using the leaked paper obtained from Suresh Sau.
The ED’s investigation also revealed the involvement of Vijay Damore. It is alleged that he wrote down the questions of the General Knowledge (GK) paper in a register, as instructed by his maternal uncle Babulal Katara, a former member of the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC). The said register was then supplied to Anil Kumar Meena, who further distributed it to Bhupendra Saran, Arun Sharma, and others in exchange for money.
These recent arrests come after the ED filed a chargesheet against the accused in November last year. The chargesheet was filed based on a money laundering case registered by the ED after taking cognisance of a Rajasthan Police FIR.
