2010 BOPEE Scam Probe in Progress: Crime Branch


SRINAGAR: The Crime Branch Friday said that investigations into the complaints of BOPEE 2010 entrance exams were going on and that the file was never closed in the past.

Talking to KNS, IG Crime Branch Muneer Khan said that there were complaints received earlier over BOPEE 2010 exams and the investigations into the case are going.

Asked whether the investigations were halted for a while, Khan said the file was never closed and the Crime Branch is probing the mater thoroughly.

While refusing to divulge further information, he said the process of investigations is going on and nothing could be ascertained till the final conclusion.

Pertinently, earlier the reports came to fore that Crime Branch caught hold of the ten students including eight girls, allegedly involved in the CET paper leak scam during 2010.

Reports had informed that after the CET scam of 2012 got unearthed, the Crime Branch got vital inputs about the similar mess at BOPEE during 2010. The students reportedly involved in the paper leak racket hail from South Kashmir’s Anantnag, Kulgam and Shopian.  The preliminary investigation report under number 7/2014 was registered in state’s crime branch department.

Reports had claimed that the Crime Branch had received the inputs about the admissions done in 2010 through CET are forged but the matter was hushed up due to political and bureaucratic pressure. Soon after the CET 2012 surfaced, the Crime Branch officials opened up the files of 2010.
