Ghaziabad: A special task force team from Ahmedabad on Wednesday raided the residence of Deen Dayal -- the alleged mastermind of the All India Engineering Entrance Examination question paper leak -- here, but he fled before the team reached there, police said.

Acting on the inputs of Phool Chandra, a bank employee and Dayal's brother who was arrested from Lucknow by UP police on May 2, the STF team raided several places in the city, including the kingpin's residence in Vaishali, STF circle officer Treveni Singh said.

However, Dayal escaped before the STF team reached his residence, he said.

AIEEE question papers were leaked in UP and reportedly sold for Rs 6 lakh forcing CBSE to postpone the test by over two hours and provide over 12 lakh students across the country with fresh set of questions on Monday.

CBSE, which conducts the AIEEE exams, has in the meantime decided to set up a three-member enquiry committee to investigate the incident. The committee will submit its report within four weeks.
