A man suspected to be the mastermind of the Tamil Nadu Pulic Service Commission (TNPSC) Group II exam paper leak was arrested at Visakhapatnam on Wednesday.
Srikakulam native Anandarao, who used to work with the Railways in Bubaneswar, Odisha was caught by a special police team camping in Andhra Pradesh for the past week.
Though the police team managed to trace his house in Visakapatnam a few days back, Anandarao got to know that the cops were closing in on him and along with his family, gave them the slip.

Thyagarajan also alleged that he gave `4 lakh to Anandarao for the paper. It was said that an entire network worked for Anandarao and that they would land up in Chennai whenever such examinations were conducted and leak the question papers in exchange of money.
