Haryana police has traced the roots of the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) leak case to Bihar. The kingpin, Roop Singh Dangi, who had allegedly provided the answer key to 90 questions to the four accused (arrested by Haryana police), is still absconding. Raids at his suspected hideouts have proved unsuccessful, police said.

The Rohtak police busted a gang of four persons — including two BDS doctors and a second-year MBBS student — on Sunday and later disclosed that the AIPMT exam had been leaked. Police said the questioning of the four yielded a list of mobile phone numbers that are being used by a few suspects who are yet to be arrested.

“Most of these cellphone numbers have been obtained using fake identities, but it still gives us some clues about the actual suspects. Our teams are using technical surveillance to nab all those who have played a role in this racket. A number of mobile phone numbers belong to Bihar,” a senior police officer said.

A special investigation team (SIT) headed by a DSP-rank officer of Rohtak police has conducted raids at several places in Rajasthan and Haryana to arrest all suspects. But more arrests are yet to be made.

According to police, one of the arrested, Ravi Attri, was allegedly in constant contact with Dangi, the kingpin of the racket. But Ravi allegedly told police that he has never met Dangi.

“So far, Ravi has claimed that he had never met Dangi. He claimed that Dangi used to give him instructions on phone and had asked him to deliver the collected money to one of his associates. Ravi also told us that Dangi had said that once the exam is over and the entire money collected, he might meet Ravi. But before that could happen, we arrested these four,” another officer said.

The cyber cell of Rohtak police, which is also working on the case, has so far not been able to track down Dangi’s exact location.

“The two mobile phone numbers, which were used by Dangi, are switched off,” a senior Haryana police officer said.

Asked about the fate of the exam, Shrikant Jadhav, IGP (Rohtak range), said the CBSE is yet to cancel the exam.
