A local court Friday rejected the bail application moved by the dummy candidates and eight others accused in the PGI's MD/MS exam scam. The bail was rejected by the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate on grounds that it might hamper the investigation as the case is in its initial stages.
The counsel for the accused had moved a bail application, saying that it has been 60 days since the accused were arrested and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been unable to submit a chargesheet. The court however replied that the period may be extended to 90 days.
The bail plea of the seven dummy candidates, six accused arrested from the hotels, the kingpin Gurivi Reddy and co-accused Dr Gangadhar Reddy was moved to the court.
The fifteen persons were arrested after the CBI busted a racket in which the accused allegedly used to leak the question papers of medical entrance exams and charge heavy amounts from doctors.
For the same, seven dummy candidates were sent to the examination centers equipped with sophisticated electronic devices, to leak the question paper of the examination held on November 10.
