Final charge-sheet submitted in APSC cash-for-job scam
GUWAHATI: Dibrugarh Police on June 13 submitted the final charge-sheet in the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) cash-for-job scam case.
The investigation into the case, led by Surjeet Singh Panesar, took around two and a half years to complete.
Panesar informed that police had arrested 70 people in relation to the case including the prime accused Rakesh Paul, the then APSC chairman.
Meanwhile, a special court recently granted bail to one of the prime accused in the case, Rakesh Gupta on June 11.
It should be mentioned that the then APSC chairman Rakesh Paul was arrested in November 2016, after a job aspirant lodged a complaint in Dibrugarh police station saying that Nabakanta Patir, an engineer, had offered her a government job through the APSC if she pays bribe.
