SIM card dealer arrested in PGI exam scam

November 17, 2012

In the PGIMER MD/MS entrance exam leak, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) sleuths on Friday late evening arrested a man, who sells SIM cards at a shop in Behlana, a suburb near Chandigarh Airport.

The accused was identified as Naval Kumar and CBI officers said that the shopkeeper identified around three others who had purchased SIMsfrom him. So far, CBI has arrested 15 accused, including eight women, who facilitated leak of the question paper outside the exam hall, and even dictated answers to actual beneficiaries by using hi-tech devices.

“We have recovered around 48 SIM cards of two different telecom companies from the accused. These were obtained on false documents. We conducted raids at the shop in Behlana and Naval Kumar has been detained.”

“Around 40 SIMs were bought from his shop and Kumar sold these without verification. We suspect his involvement in the racket. Three-four more persons are on our radar and we will arrest them tomorrow,” he said.

Sources said that they would make a separate report on their Friday’s arrest and would submit the same to local police. Besides, all 15 accused are currently in CBI remand and they would be produced before the court on Saturday.
