SAD seeks CBI probe into police recruitment ‘scam’ : The Tribune India


Tribune News Service

Amritsar, October 2 

Former Minister Bikram Singh Majithia on Saturday demanded a high-level inquiry into the Rs 150 crore Punjab Police recruitment scam, besides scrapping the current recruitment process and holding fresh tests to fill the posts.

Holding a press conference here, Bikram Majithia said it was shocking that even though an FIR had been registered in Patiala that fraudulent methods were used in the test held for the recruitment of 560 sub-inspectors, the entire process had not been scrapped till now. “As per the FIR, which has been registered at the Anaj Mandi police station, it is clear that the paper of the candidate was done from outside the examination centre. It is clear that computers were hacked and other candidates also resorted to malpractices to clear the examination which involved seven lakh students for more than 5,500 posts, including those of head constables and constables.”

“We demand a CBI inquiry into the scam or one by a sitting judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court. The tentacles of this scam are spread across other states also and a number of Congress leaders as well as senior police officials are also involved in it and only an impartial inquiry will bring out the truth in the case.”
