The police didn’t recover any question paper from the coaching institute; however, it has come up that the coaching institute owners were involved in taking money from candidates and promising them the question paper a day prior to the exam which was held on Sunday. The coaching institute owner is yet to be arrested as he couldn’t be found for interrogation, police officials said.

The raid at Indraprashtha Coaching Institute in Jhunjhunu was conducted under the supervision of SP, Jhunjhunu Rajendra Prasad Goyal, IG, Jaipur range VK Singh said.

“Nearly 46 candidates who were sent to the institute by middlemen for procuring PTI exam paper were taken into custody. They were interrogated. They told the police that each one of them was asked to pay up to Rs 6 lakh to get the PTI exam paper,” said a police officer.

Rajendra Prasad Goyal said that the coaching institute owner, Jaisingh Kalipahadi had taken blank cheques from the candidates.

“The gang promised the candidates that they would need to pay money only if 90% of the questions in the paper that they were being provided matched up exactly with the PTI exam paper that was to come out on Sunday,” said the officer.
