GSSSB exam: Paper leaked from Sanand press, 3 held | Ahmedabad News

AHMEDABAD: In a breakthrough, the Gandhinagar police arrested the three main conspirators behind the leak of the chief secretary’s examination. The Gujarat Subordinate Services Selection Board (GSSSB) examination was held on December 12. Gandhinagar police arrested the three on Saturday.
The interrogation of the three defendants has revealed that the paper was leaked from a Sanand printing company that had been hired by the board.
The defendants have been identified as Deepak Patel, a Hathijan resident in Dahegam; Mangesh Shirke, a resident of Nava Naroda; and Shirke’s relative, Kishor Acharya, a Manipur resident in Sanand. “The Gandhinagar police were tasked by rank IG Abhay Chudasama to catch the accused,” said Gandhinagar SP Mayur Chavda. “A team of officers from the local crime branch in coordination with the Sabarkantha police began an investigation.”
Chavda said police discovered that the main defendant, Jayesh Patel, and Deepak Patel had been introduced by another defendant named Deval Patel.
Jayesh had sold the questionnaire to three students: two at Prantij and one at Mehsana.
Deepak was an ambulance driver at a hospital where Deval was a nurse. Deepak contacted Shirke, who worked as a night manager at a private hospital in Mithakhali. Acharya, Shirke’s wife’s uncle, worked in the printing press in Sanand. Chavda said that Acharya, a printing supervisor, obtained the paper and, together with Shirke and Deepak, sold it to Deval and Jayesh for Rs 9 lakh. Chavda added that the police officers have confiscated 7 lakh rupees from Shirke’s home. Chavda said Jayesh took a token amount of Rs 1-2 lakh from a targeted candidate and retained the candidate’s original documents. If the candidate received the leaked document, he or she had to pay Rs 10-12 lakh. The documents were returned only after the considerable amount was paid.
