Aide tampered with phone to avoid suspicion in RAS test bribe

Jaipur: The anti-corruption bureau (ACB) said that one of the three accused arrested on Thursday in a bribery case related to the Rajasthan Administrative Service (RAS) examination, had tampered with his mobile phone in order to clear his tracks.
ACB, DG, B L Soni, said efforts are being made to retrieve the information deleted from the phone by the accused Kishnaram. The agency said that Kishnaram’s contacts are also under the scanner. Three persons — Jogaram Saran, the principal of a government school in Barmer, Thakararam, owner of Mother Teresa Senior Secondary School in Barmer, and Kishnaram, a middleman, were arrested on Thursday. The agency had also seized the bribe amount of Rs 20 lakh which was returned by the middleman after he failed to keep his promise of ensuring 70% marks to the ‘beneficiary’ in the RAS interview.
“Kishnaram had tampered with his mobile phone when he learned of the ACB action, his mobile phone will be examined,” Soni said.
The bribe was given in order to secure over 70% marks for the candidate, Harish, a relative of Thakararam.
However, Harish got only 54% marks in the interview round. Although he cleared the RAS 2018 exams, Thakararam asked Krishnaram to return the money. The officials told TOI that the agency had contacted Harish, but he has not responded yet.
ACB inundated with complaints from RAS aspirants: Complaints kept pouring in on the ACB’s helpline and WhatsApp numbers about alleged irregularities in the RAS selection process. TNN
