Ranchi: The mastermind of Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) job scam, Dr. Gopal Prasad Singh, surrendered before the state vigilance court here on Monday.

The Court sent him to 14 days custody in Birsa Munda Central jail.

Singh had been absconding since FIRs were lodged against him last year.

Subsequently the vigilance department announced a reward of Rs 50,000 on his arrest.

Earlier, the vigilance bureau has attached his property and had conducted several raids at his residences at Godda, Dumka and his relatives in Banka.

Other accused of the scam Dilip Prasad, Usha Rani Singh and Shanti Devi who were arrested this year in April are already lodged in Birsa Munda Jail.
