The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) on Saturday detained nine persons including Director of the Battisputali-based Golden Gate International College for their involvement in leaking question papers of MBBS scholarship examinations.

The College Director Deviram Pandey was nabbed from Ratopul of the Capital this afternoon while he was selling two sections of the question paper to nine MBBS students, CIAA said.

Dr Prabhat Kumar Kushawah was also apprehended from the location for facilitating the transaction.

Based on its investigation, CIAA later arrested seven others including Golden Gate College teacher Khechar Lal Sapkota aka Harihar and another mediator Maheshwor Prasad Yadav for their involvement in the question leak.
