Congress leader in Bhopal Sanjeev Saxena surrenders: STF arrests, interrogates him in PEB scam

Congress leader Sanjeev Saxena who owns Radharaman Group of Engineering Colleges has finally been arrested.

The special task force (STF) has arrested him for his alleged role in the professional examination board (PEB) scam, after he surrendered.

Had Saxena not surrendered, the process to attach his property would have begun. Saxena even went up to the Supreme Court, to get relief.

The Apex court told him to appear before CJM court by May 12. After he appeared in the court in Bhopal, he was remanded to STF custody.

Sanjeev Saxena is now being quizzed for his role in fraud. Saxena has always been known for controversies, his bullying in MANIT (formerly MACT) and for shady deals. But for years, he managed to get away despite being wanted by police, due to his political connections. But he is now made to face the law.

It will not be easy for him to come out of this case. His role in many fraud cases (for helping candidates pass in the competition and recruitment examinations through bribes) has been found. He will be interrogated and arrested in these cases also.
