TS-EAMCET-2: CID to register criminal cases against involved students

Is Rajagopal the kingpin or just another link in the chain? - Sakshi Post

Hyderabad: The CID have arrested a total of six persons so far in the TS-EAMCET-2 paper leak case, including the alleged prime accused Rajagopal and Venkataiah alias Venkataramaiah, the owner of Resonance medical academy in LB Nagar.

Police sources reveal that criminal cases might also be registered against certain students. Some of the students’ bank accounts show transactions up to Rs 50 lakh. Most of the students involved in the case are absconding as of now and the police are looking at registering criminal cases against them.

Initially the police had arrested Vishnu and Tirumal in this case. They later booked Ramesh and Bandaru Ravindra. The prime accused Rajagopal and Venkatramaiah were arrested on Saturday.

The CID has found that Venkataiah alias Venkataramaiah had earlier lied about being the PRO of Resonance academy. Upon investigation it was found that he was not only the owner of the academy, but also had branches in Vijayawada, Hyderabad and other places.
Bandaru Ravindra, who works as the mess in-charge at the medical academy is reported to have assisted Venkataramaiah in moving four students to Pune.

Investigations revealed that they both had collected Rs 35 lakh from the students and passed it onto the other accused Ramesh.
The paper was also leaked to the 14 students who were sent by broker Vishnu and to another 6 students sent by Jyothibabu of Vijayawada. Rajagopal is said to have collected a total of Rs.1.25 crore from the students.

Is Rajagopal the kingpin?

Rajgopal might not be the kingpin
The police are reported to believe that Rajgopal might not be the kingpin of the operation but rather another broker in the chain. The case seems to be getting murkier as it expands into other states as well; students were reportedly moved to Chennai and other places as well.

The police are looking for the key person who was running the show. They will only be able to gauge the depth and the span of the scam only after getting to this person, they say.
