Hyderabad: The Abdullapurmet police on Tuesday arrested four persons, including two lecturers, for leaking question papers of the board diploma semester examinations to students of Swathi Institute of Technology and Sciences in Batasingaram village under Abdullapurmet mandal, Rangareddy district.

The four have been identified as Gidda Krishna Murthy (57), an administrative officer at Swathi Institute of Technology and Sciences; Samudrala Venkateshwarulu (31) and Keshetty Krishna Mohan (28), lecturers at the institute; and Manda Venkat Ram Reddy, a lecturer-cum-observer.

Gidda Krishna Murthy, Samudrala Venkateshwarulu, and Keshetty Krishna Mohan knew each other as they worked at the Swathi Institute of Technology and Sciences. Meanwhile, Manda Venkat Ram Reddy was appointed as an observer at the institute for the smooth conduct of the board diploma semester regular examinations from 8 to 12 February.

Murthy, Venkateshwarulu, and Mohan hatched a plan to increase the pass percentage of their college by leaking the question papers to their students. Venkat Ram Reddy knew about it and did not report it to the authorities.

According to their plan, Murthy and Venkateshwarulu downloaded the question papers and Mohan circulated them among their students. They had leaked the question papers of Applied Engineering Mathematics and Electrical Circuits. The leaked papers were then circulated to other students through WhatsApp.

The Abdullapurmet police arrested the four persons and sent them to judicial remand. A report is being submitted to the State Diploma Board seeking action against them and to verify the complicity of other members.
