Admits IG (Vigilance) A.P. Pandey: "Getting evidence is not impossible but it's very tedious." Exactly how tedious, another senior police official points out: "People from the police, the judiciary and the administration, all are involved. And political backing is required to take this scandal to its logical end. But it will be an uphill task given that top-level people from the government and various political parties have either connived or benefited from the corruption spawned by Sidhu in the ppsc."

Already, the confession before a magistrate by Jagman Singh, Sidhu's friend and associate, has revealed that politicians freely patronised the ppsc chairman. Jagman confessed to having leaked several ppsc question papers to the son of 'Kala', a trusted aide of former chief minister Parkash Singh Badal. But even more shocking is his revelation that he visited the house of a sitting judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court to deliver a leaked question paper the night before a ppsc examination.
