Assam Police on Thursday filed chargesheet against 25 suspended officials in the cash-for-job scam of the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC).
24 officers serving in the Assam Civil Service (ACS), Assam Police Service (APS) and allied services are currently lodged in Guwahati Central Jail and one accused has been declared as absconder. A lookout notice has been issued in the state to nab absconding official Rakesh Gupta.
Dibrugarh police filed the chargesheet against the officials at the Special Judge’s court in Guwahati.
The officers accused in the case are Sunayana Aideu, Pallabi Sarma Choudhury, Hemanta Hillol Saikia, Gitali Dolley, Kamal Deb Nath, Debajit Bora, Jatindra Prasad Duwarah, Kunal Das, Dilip Kalita, Dipak Khanikar, Sudipta Goswami Bhattacharya, Rumi Saikia, Badrul Islam Choudhury, Jyotirmoy Adhikari, Rajarshi Sen Deka, Daithun Borgoyari, Raju Saha, Harshajyoti Bora, Amarjit Das, Anirudha Roy, Nishamoni Deka, Himangshu Choudhury and Jayanta Kr Nath.
“We have taken a different route in this case. Instead of starting the process of collecting evidence after arresting the accused, the usual line in other cases, we have first collected all the evidence and then went for their arrest,” a source said.
Police have enclosed with the charge sheet the details of the forensic report of their handwritings and answer scripts.
On the other hand, the Special Judges Court on Thursday once again rejected the bail plea of arrested official Nisha Moni Deka.
