MeraNews Network, Vadodara: The Gujarat Anti Terrorist Squad had nabbed Yashpalsinh Solanki alias Yashpal Thakor, who is allegedly the key conspirator behind the LRD Paper Leaks, from Mahisagar on early Thursday. But it is being said that Yashpal was kept hidden from the cops by Bharatiya Janata Party leader from Vadodara inside his factory. The ATS also picked up two other suspects from Vadodara, one of whom is said to be an official employed with the city municipal corporation.
The BJP government in Gujarat is under fire from all the directions over the leak of answer keys of the written examination for the recruitment of Lok Rakshak Dal jawans in Gujarat Police, on the morning of the exams. With many of the accused in this case are being found to have their links to the BJP, the police is under great pressure to take extra care if any major political leader is to be detained or arrested. The ATS had nabbed Yashpal after they got a tipoff about his whereabouts in a factory owned by a Vadodara BJP leader.
During his interrogation, his connections with officials employed with the Vadodara Municipal Corporation were also revealed. Acting upon this information, the ATS picked up two more suspects from Vadodara. They are also being interrogated by the investigators currently.
Yashpal too was previously employed with the corporation until sometime back. He was fired from his job for being irregular. The BJP leader in question had built pressure on the corporation to take Yashpal back. The politician is believed to be involved in recruitment scams where teachers and professors were to be hired.
