Dibrugarh police on Monday submitted case dairy against 23 officials at the Special Judges’ Court in Guwahati in connection with the APSC cash-for-job scam.
Police have so far arrested 23 ACS, APS and allied service officials and are on the lookout for two more officials allegedly involved in it.
Police had earlier identified 25 officers of the 2015 batch who had allegedly bribed APSC officials to get jobs through doctored answer scripts.
Police on Monday produced 14 arrested officials in the court, which sent them to 14-day judicial custody again.
Another arrested official Rumi Saikia was also remanded in judicial custody, who was produced in the court after the completion of her 14-day police remand.
Arrested ACS officer Rajarshi Sen Deka, son of former Congress Minister Nilamani Sen Deka, has on Monday filed bail petition in the court.
Police had on November 8 arrested 16 civil services officials in connection with the cash-for-job scam in the tainted APSC in one of the biggest crackdowns against corruption in the state in recent times.
There is still no trace of ACS officer Nishamoni Deka and APS officer Rakesh Gupta.
Last year, the police arrested APSC chairperson Rakesh Paul and two other members of the commission – Samedur Rahman and Basanta Kumar Doley – for their role in the scam.
The scam surfaced after a dentist, who had applied for a job through an examination conducted by APSC, was approached by a state government employee promising her the post if she paid Rs 10 lakh.
A trap was laid and the employee, who used to act as an agent for senior APSC officials, was arrested while taking the bribe money.
