Hyderabad:The Begum Bazaar police on Sunday took into custody 10 persons for their alleged role in the leak of the question paper of Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) exam for Town Planning Building Overseer scheduled to be held on Sunday.
The main kingpin of the case is identified as Praveen Kumar, personal assistant to the Secretary of the TSPSC head Anita Ramachandran. Praveen allegedly handed over the question paper to Renuka, a school teacher. Both of them know each other for long and the teacher sought help of Praveen because she needed the paper for a relative who is appearing for exam.
Praveen got the paper from the TSPSC office with the help of co-employees and handed over to Renuka. She sold it some people in Warangal.
