Hyderabad:  Intensifying the probe into the TS EAMCET-2 question paper leakage case that’s rocking both the Telugu states, Central Investigation Department (CID) on Friday afternoon arrested one more vital accused Ramesh alias Shaik Raheem. The CID officials have recovered the cash amount of Rs 37.5 lakh from the account of the Ramesh and Rs.15 lakhs from his friends’ accounts.

The officials said that Ramesh collected a whopping amount of nearly Rs.1.73 crore from total 14 students. A portion of the amount was given to a broker who collected the money from the students.

Briefing about the modus operandi of the criminals, a spokesperson from CID said the ‘brokers’ took some of the students they ‘endorsed’ to Pune and trained them on the question paper four days before the exam.

As of now, CID arrested three accused in the case and are searching for the other persons by concentrating on the brokers and prime accused involved in the question paper ‘leakage deal’ which is believed to be above Rs.50 crore.
