Kumar who is a senior Indian Administrative Service officer was arrested from Hazaribag town in Jharkhand along with four other relatives. He is currently being interrogated, reports said.
As per reports, Kumar had been missing since the scam surfaced earlier this month. His family however claimed Kumar is innocent and is being made the “scapegoat”.
This is the second big arrest in the case. Earlier the SIT had arrested BSSC secretary Parmeshwar Ram in connection with the scam. So far more than 20 persons have been arrested in connection with the case.
Earlier, the state government cancelled the clerical examination conducted by the Bihar Staff Selection Commission (BSSC) after reports of question paper leak.
