He passed it to Harikrishnan, who circulated it among his friends.

Additional DGP Amresh Pujari told The Hindu, “We have cracked the case after a thorough investigation. We have arrested two persons; one more person is absconding.”

A complaint was made to the university, following which the exam was cancelled. The university’s Controller of Examination M. Venkatesan lodged a formal complaint with the CBCID on December 7.
