Kolkata, Dec 7 : A former railway employee and a driver were among the seven people arrested Saturday on suspicion of involvement in the leak of question papers of a railway recruitment examination, an official in West Bengal said.


Cash, mobiles and some documents were seized from the arrested people, the official said.

The accused were arrested from Howrah during a joint operation by the railway vigilance team and police.

"Besides Rs.4,63,000 in cash, 71 mobile phones, some Xerox and fax machines have been found in their possession. While no question papers have been found, some documents have been seized and the vigilance team is inspecting them," a South Eastern Railway spokesperson said.

He said that of the seven arrested, one is a former employee who took voluntary retirement. Another worked as a driver with the railways.

The official said the recruitment examination will be held as scheduled Sunday, Dec 8.

Minister of State for Railways Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said stringent action would be taken against those found guilty of attempting to leak question papers.
