Two job aspirants in the cash-for-job scam, Kishore Deb and Ajay Dutta Biswas have recorded their statements in front of the chief judicial magistrate (CJM) in Assam’s Dibrugarh district.

Bhola Tiwari, the driver of the accused Ajanta Hazarika, also recorded his statement in the CJM court on Wednesday.

Hazarika, a doctor of the Assam Medical College and Hospital (AMCH) has been accused of taking money from candidates, promising to provide them with jobs in the Northeast Frontier Railways (NFR).

Amol Nath had lodged an FIR against Hazarika at the Gabharupathar Police Outpost in Dibrugarh on December 7, accusing her of taking about Rs 22 lakhs from three job aspirants.

Nath is the father of one of the job aspirants, who paid Rs 6 lakhs to the doctor for a job in the Indian railways.

Nath has also alleged that he had transferred half of the amount to the bank account of Rajeev Parashar in Sixmile, Guwahati.

Guwahati crime branch sleuths had arrested Parashar in October for taking money from candidates for various public service recruitment examinations.

Although a police team had gone to the accused’s residence for questioning on Tuesday, she was absent from her home.

Hazarika is reportedly on casual leave for Guwahati to evade arrest.
