The arrestees are Ariful Islam and Saiful Islam – both senior staff nurses at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
The duo was arrested from Dhaka University’s Fuller Road around 10:45pm on Thursday.
DB police recovered 11 sets of question papers from them that were meant for a recruitment test for senior nurses.
The test was scheduled for October 6 under the supervision of Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPSC) but was later cancelled over question leak allegation.
