Chief of Telangana BJP, Bandi Sanjay
Hyderabad: The chief of Telangana BJP, Bandi Sanjay, was summoned again by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Telangana police to appear before them on 26 March regarding the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) exam paper leak case.
Bandi Sanjay was previously summoned by the SIT and asked to appear before officials to answer questions regarding his claim that several ruling BRS leaders are involved in the TSPSC exam paper leak. A reminder notice has been issued to Mr. Sanjay to appear before the SIT on Sunday.
The SIT officials visited Mr. Sanjay’s residence in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad, and served him with a notice to provide information related to the ongoing case.
According to the notice, a case was registered at the Begum Bazar police station, which was later transferred to the SIT for further investigation. The team has apprehended nine accused individuals who are being interrogated in connection with the crime. The custody of the accused has been granted by the jurisdictional magistrate.
The summon was issued after a news article published in Sakshi Telugu newspaper on 21 March. The article contained a statement allegedly made by the individual, which led the investigating officer to believe that it may be relevant to the ongoing investigation.
The notice required the individual to appear before the investigating officer with relevant documents and materials related to around 50 persons from Jagityal district who are alleged to have been qualified, along with other related information. The individual was requested to appear in person on Sunday (26 March) at 11 a.m. at the office of the SIT.
In response, Mr. Sanjay said he will consult his legal team before deciding whether or not to attend the SIT inquiry. He also mentioned his obligation to follow the court’s demand for a trial by the sitting judge.
