The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), on a tip-off, has sent out teams to arrest more ring members involved in the leak and sale of Central Superior Services (CSS) exam’s question papers.
“We have dispatched teams to arrest the accused scattered in different parts of the country,” said a senior FIA official.
According to him, teams have been dispatched to Hyderabad, Sahiwal and Saidoo Sharif and Peshawar.
FIA already has five accused in custody including Assistant Director FPSC and in-charge of examination in Quetta, Khalid Hussain Mughairi.
Late in February, the investigation agency acted on information regarding the exam paper leak and arrested Syed Tajamul Hussain Naqvi from Excise and Taxation Department Punjab and Engineer Shehzad Sial.
On their tip-off, FIA also arrested Khalid, the main culprit in this crime.
The information received from Mugheri helped FIA arrest other culprits including In Land Revenue Inspector Sajjad from Multan and Assistant Superintendent Jail Awais Sharif.
According to the federal agency, the culprits received Rs. 3 lacs from each candidate for providing the question paper one to two hours before the exam.
The accused confessed to selling the question papers in the last couple of years and accepted that they made millions by selling papers in 2018.
They were planning to leak CSS exam paper this year with the help of Mugheri, who was newly appointed as Examination in-charge in Quetta – but timely action by FIA failed their malicious designs, said an investigator seeking anonymity.
