APSC Scam: Prime accused Rakesh Gupta gets bail
GUWAHATI: A special court on June 11, 2019, has granted bail to one of the prime accused in the infamous APSC cash-for-job scam, Rakesh Gupta.
Gupta had surrendered before the Special Court on April 11, 2019, after which he was sent to police custody on April 22 by a special court. The court had directed the Dibrugarh Police to take him in custody.

Based on a case (2/2017) with the Dibrugarh police, 63 gazetted officers were arrested, sent to jail, suspended and then dismissed from services.
