“Searches were conducted at nine different places including at Siang, East Siang, Upper Siang, Itanagar, Naharlagun etc districts (all in Arunachal Pradesh) which led to the recovery of several incriminating documents/articles, handwritten questions in APTET-2016, copy of Agreement, copy of Sale Agreement etc,” an official said.
