APSC Scam: Gauhati HC hears PIL filed by suspended officials
GUWAHATI: The Gauhati high court on Tuesday, June 18 started its hearing process in regards to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by the suspended officials involved in the infamous APSC cash-for-job scam.
43 suspended officials had filed a PIL at the Gauhati High Court requesting them to be allowed to resume office and a bench headed by Justice N Koteshwar Singh agreed to hear the plea.
After the completion of first-day of hearing, Advocate Nalin K
ohli said that “The sacked officers involved in the APSC scam won’t get back their jobs. The state and the central government are really serious about uprooting corruption.”
It may be mentioned that the suspended officials had filed a PIL at the Gauhati High Court requesting them to be allowed to resume office due to a flaw in their dismissal process.
Two senior advocates of the Supreme Court Maninder Singh and Nalin Kohli have fought the legal battle on behalf of the government while the high court bench has posted the matter for further hearing on July 30.
