The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) on Tuesday arrested Siddhartha Lama for involvement in leaking question paper of the entrance examination of the Institute of Engineering (IoE) held on August 12. Nine others accused in the case are already in custody since August 13 for investigation.
The CIB team arrested Lama, 27, from Sigma General Offset Press, Sanepa where he worked. It has been revealed that Lokendra Bista of the same press had lured Lama into hiding a copy of the question papers to sell it to students, according to CIB.

A day before the exam, Mandal, Manoj Yadav and Shiv Sagar Yadav sold copy of the questions to three other students Krishna Jha, Amit Kumar Yadav and Raj Kumar Raut for Rs 15,000 each. The accused have been sent to Metropolitan Police Range, Lalitpur.
Earlier on Monday, IoE had scrapped the exam following the CIB report on the case.
