A Tollywood producer Kota Gangadhar Reddy,who is also a qualified doctor, was arrested with 15 others earlier this month by the CBI after it busted an inter−state racket that was spread across Chandigarh to Hyderabad to Patna.
Kota Gangadhar Reddy had also produced a film Nandeeswarudu starring Nandamuri Tarakaratna under his newly established Kota Film Corporation banner.
He was running a well−oiled racket of leaking out question papers of the MD and MS (doctor of medicine and master of surgery) entrance examinations at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh.
CBI sources said that Reddy, who was arrested from Patna Nov 11, used to provide answers to leaked question papers of MD and MS entrance exams to students who paid P. Gurivi Reddy, the kingpin of the paper leakage gang.
Among the 15 people arrested by the CBI, seven are women, who were taking the MD and MS entrance exams here Nov 10 as decoy candidates. None of them is a qualified MBBS, the minimum qualification to take the test.
Following the CBI raids Nov 10, the entrance test was stopped. PGIMER cancelled the test after the CBI registered a case. A fresh test would be held next month.
