Hyderabad: The Telangana government on Tuesday cancelled TS EAMCET-II 2016 in the wake of leakage of the question paper last month.

The decision was taken by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao.

The decision comes after CID arrested three brokers, who allegedly conducted practice for some students in Pune, Bengaluru and other cities with leaked question papers.

More than 50,000 students had appeared in TS EAMCET-II held on July 9 but doubts about the leakage of question paper were raised with average students bagging top ranks.

Following persistent demands by a section of students and their parents, the government had ordered a CID inquiry.

The investigators believe 100 students benefited from the leakage of question papers and the persons involved collected Rs 15 crore from these students.
