By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, Nov 1 - Prime accused in the Joint Entrance Examination (Main) scam and owner of city-based consultancy firm Global Edu Light Bhargav Deka was arrested at the Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport here this evening. With the intention of surrendering before police, Deka landed at the city airport after taking a flight from New Delhi. Sources said Deka decided to surrender after the court rejected his anticipatory bail petition recently.

Deka has been on the run since the day police unearthed the scam based on a complaint filed by one Mitradev Sarma in Azara police station.

Police has already arrested Kakoli Bujarbarua, the counsellor of the consultancy firm and search operation is under way to nab other employees of the organisation too, a senior police official told The Assam Tribune. But the police is still in the dark about the identity of the proxy candidate who had appeared in the JEE (Main) on behalf of Neel Nakshatra Das. �Till now, we have no information about the proxy candidate. The picture will become clear only after the arrest of Bhargav Deka,� Assistant Commissioner of Police (Azara) Nandini Kakoti said. She also stated that the police is yet to find out the techniques through which Bhargav Deka engaged the proxy candidate.

According to a source, Deka has been involved in such scams for a long time and used unfair means to pass his clients in different examinations, especially in medical and engineering entrance examinations.
