Economic Offences Unit Begins Investigation into Properties of NEET Paper Leak Accused

By Neeraj Kumar

Patna: The Economic Offences Unit (EOU) has initiated an investigation into the properties of all the main accused involved in the NEET paper leak and other competitive exam paper leak cases. By gathering detailed information on the properties of the major perpetrators (exam mafia), the EOU plans to register cases of disproportionate assets (DA) against them and confiscate their properties.

Recent raids conducted at various locations in Patna have uncovered a large number of cheques, passbooks, financial transactions, and documents related to investments. Additionally, documents pertaining to land and property, as well as those of the candidates, have been found. The investigating agency has obtained many important clues during its investigation.

According to departmental sources, Sanjeev Mukhiya and his son Dr. Shiv, along with Chintu, Rocky, Amit, Anshul, Bijendrajen Prasad Gupta, and Akhilesh, are among the key figures under the EOU’s scrutiny. The EOU is currently in the process of identifying and starting the confiscation of properties belonging to selected kingpins. A thorough investigation into the assets of these kingpins is underway.

The Sanjeev Mukhiya gang is considered the mastermind behind the paper leaks of both the major state-level competitive examinations for constable and teacher recruitment. Their involvement in the NEET paper leak has also come to light. Previously, they have been accused of leaking papers in various competitive exams.

While the investigation of the NEET paper leak case has been transferred to the CBI, the EOU continues to investigate other cases, such as the constable recruitment paper leak and the third phase of the BPSC teacher recruitment paper leak. The EOU is preparing for major actions against Mukhiya and other significant perpetrators, examining all their means and places of investment, including the bank accounts of the accused, their family members, and close associates.

Some major perpetrators have made significant investments outside Bihar, which are being investigated separately. The EOU is also scrutinizing the legitimate sources of income of the accused and their families, the extent of property accumulated in recent years, the timelines of property acquisitions, and the details of both movable and immovable properties.

It has been revealed that Chintu and Sanjeev Mukhiya have invested heavily in land and flats in the names of their wives and other close associates. The EOU is using this information to compile complete details of their illegal properties.
