11 accused get 14-day judicial remand

November 18, 2012

A local court on Saturday remanded 11 of the 15 accused in the PGIMER MD/MS entrance exam question paper leak case in 14-day judicial custody. Four main accused – P Gurivi Reddy, P Bharat Chand, P Jagdeesh and P Sidhartha – were sent to CBI remand.

However, the 11 accused, who have been sent to judicial remand, would be produced before the court on Monday to give their handwriting samples. The investigating agency has also identified 10 beneficiaries – all MBBS practising doctors – and summoned them for joining the investigation on November 19.

CBI sources said, “Six of the beneficiaries have paid lakhs of rupees to mastermind P Gurivi Reddy and Gangadhar Reddy and some of these cheques have been recovered from the houses of Gurivi and Gangadhar in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh on Saturday.” While demanding further remand, the CBI special counsel PK Dogra said, “We need to take Reddy to Hyderabad and four days will be required for travelling. We have extracted many details from him and we need to take him to the actual places from where he had purchased the gadgets.”

A CBI official, who was accompanying the accused to the judge’s house, told reporters, “From the scrutiny of records, it seems that there are around 10 beneficiaries and we have summoned them for questioning.”

Accused to take baby to jail

One of the accused, Manjula, who was sent to judicial custody on Saturday, made a special request to take her six-month-old baby to Burail jail. At present, Manjula’s mother, who had come from Hyderabad, is taking care of the baby.
