The Tamil Nadu CB-CID sleuths on Wednesday arrested a driver from Washermenpet in connection with the TNPSC scam probe. The arrested person is said to be a person known to Omkanthan, a TNPSC staff, who has been already arrested.
Marialijosekumar was part of a backup plan, the police said. He was driving Omkanthan’s car as a backup to Jayakumar’s vehicle, in which answer sheets were being transported from Rameswaram to Chennai on the night of September 1, last year, after group 4 examination was over.
“Backup vehicle was meant to handle a possible crisis if Jayakumar’s vehicle faced any snag. Though the second vehicle was not used because Jayakumar’s vehicle never had any problem on the way, Marialijosekumar was aware of the malpractice,” CB-CID sources said.
