The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has made significant arrests in connection with the Paper Leak case in Rajasthan. Babulal Katara, a Member of the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC), and Anil Kumar Meena have been apprehended by the ED. These arrests have been executed under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. A special court has remanded Katara and Meena to ED custody for three days. This development comes as a significant step in the ongoing investigation into the paper leak case.

ED Takes Over Rajasthan Police Case

The ED’s involvement in this case began when it took over the investigation from the Rajasthan Police. The case pertains to the leak of the General Knowledge paper, which was conducted by RPSC for the recruitment of Senior Teacher Grade II. The alleged leak occurred between December 21 and 24, 2022, causing a major disruption in the recruitment process.

Allegations of Paper Leak and Sale

The crux of the case revolves around allegations that Babulal Katara, a Member of RPSC, was involved in leaking the examination paper. Subsequently, it is alleged that he sold the leaked paper to Anil Kumar Meena. Meena, through his syndicate, is believed to have supplied the leaked paper to aspiring candidates in exchange for sums ranging from Rs 8 to 10 lakhs.

ED’s Prior Investigations and Asset Attachments

Before these arrests, the ED had conducted extensive searches at 15 premises belonging to the accused individuals on June 5. These searches led to the recovery of incriminating documents and digital records, strengthening the case against the suspects. Additionally, the ED has provisionally attached movable and immovable properties valued at approximately Rs 3.11 Crore, which belong to Babulal Katara, Anil Meena (also known as Sher Singh Meena), and others involved in the case. This provisional attachment order was dated August 18, 2023.
