The CBI has arrested a BSF commandant for allegedly using touts to get his son the question paper of the police sub-inspector recruitment examination, conducted by the Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB), the agency said on Wednesday.

The accused, Karnail Singh, a commandant of BSF (Medical), was taken into custody on Tuesday and was produced before the special CBI court in Jammu on Wednesday.

“During the probe, we found that Singh allegedly entered into a conspiracy with touts, and as part of it, arranged a leaked question paper for his son through one of them. The question paper was allegedly provided to him early in the morning on the day of the examination — March 27 — at a house in Gangyal, Jammu,” a CBI spokesperson said.

“It is alleged that some other candidates also got the leaked paper at Singh’s residence just a few hours before the examination,” the spokesperson said.
