Telangana BJP chief has been detained by a judge until April 19
Due to the scandal of exam papers from secondary schools, Telangana BJP chief Bandi Sanjay was taken into custody by the court on Wednesday for a two-week period.
Bandi Sanjay, the leader of the Telangana BJP, has been placed under arrest by a judge until April 19. After midnight, the MP of Karimnagar was taken away by a police squad from his Karimnagar City residence, setting off protests from members of his party.
The secondary school exam papers were leaked on April 3, and the police have charged Bandi Sanjay with instructing one of the defendants to “exploit the situation” by redistributing the papers.
According to the police, “the BJP state chief tried to present the situation as the consequence of the government’s inability to prevent the question paper leak.”
On Tuesday, April 4, the Telugu question paper for the Standard 10 (SSC) board exam in Telangana made its way into an instant messaging platform after a 16-year-old boy captured an image of the paper from a student who took the test and disclosed it with that student’s brother while the test was still taking place.
The paper was disclosed by one of the accusers after being posted on one group, and they also forwarded Bandi Sanjay Kumar a replica, as reported by police.
The Telangana administration would be held accountable for the question paper leak, according to the police, which is why Bandi Sanjay allegedly planned to instill fear among students and their parents during the current SSC public examination. This way, the government would be accused of being dishonest.
Police launched an investigation and filed a case after discovering the paper had been shared on social media. According to the police, the scandal was a scenario of malpractice, and cases were accordingly lodged under the appropriate laws.
“Bandi Sanjay Kumar came up with a strategy with the assistance of two other accused to release the most latest SSC exams by snapping a photograph of the exam on a mobile phone,” according to the police.
Later, Bandi Sanjay and the other three suspects were placed in judicial custody for a period of two weeks.
In the meantime, the BJP has rejected Bandi Sanjay’s accusers, calling their claims untrue and motivated by politics.
While this was going on, a sizable group of BJP supporters gathered close to the Bommalaramaram police station to denounce Bandi Sanjay’s arrest and shouted abuse at Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao. They also demanded that the BJP leader be released right away.
Bandi Sanjay has been outspoken in his condemnation of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao of the BRS government. Before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tour to Telangana on Saturday, there were rising conflicts between the BJP and the BRS at the time of the police action.
