Patna: The Bihar Police have arrested five more persons, including a woman, from Madhya Pradesh, as part of its investigation into the alleged question paper leak of the Teachers Recruitment Exam (TRE)-3 conducted in March, officials said.

According to a statement issued by the Economic Offences Unit (EOU) late on Saturday, "All five accused are part of a gang... have been arrested in Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh). Transit remand has been obtained for bringing them back to Patna." Crucial evidence has been collected from their possession, and they will be produced before a Patna court on Monday, it said.

The Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC) had cancelled the TRE-3 exam following allegations of paper leak. A new date for the examination will be announced later. The TRE-3 exams were held on March 15 at 415 centres. Around 3.75 lakh aspirants took part in the test.
