According to news agency UNI, Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Anjani Mahajan, who handled the case on behalf of the prosecution, approved the extension for another three days.
The CBI had urged the court to grant the extension citing that the foreigner is yet to give an account of the data collected from the seized laptops, mobile phones and other devices.
In September last year, the CBI had filed a case against the private company and its entire staff for allegedly manipulating the JEE Main 2021 process. The investigating agency alleged that the company in question had targeted NIIT aspirants and offered them to solve their question papers in return for money.
The CBI had conducted several raids in Delhi, NCR, Pune, Jamshedpur, Indore and Bengaluru. During this time, it seized laptops, computers, post-dated checks and many incriminating documents.
However, the king of the paper leak was arrested with a foreigner when he arrived from Kazakhstan.
