After four years, Chandigarh Police DSP Anil Joshi (CID) has submitted his detailed inquiry into alleged malpractices in the recruitment of Assistant Sub Inspectors in 2007. Inspector General of Police Pardeep Srivastava has directed R.S. Ghuman SP (Operations) to make a formal probe into the role of police officials in the recruitment scam. In his preliminary report, DSP Joshi confirmed that there were many irregularities in the recruitment of Assistant Sub Inspectors in 2007. Now, IGP asked to probe to find the role of erring officers who involved in the scam.
In 2007 the Chandigarh Police received a complaint that some Assistant Sub Inspectors (ASIs) who could not clear the physical tests were recruited. An inquiry was marked to a DSP (CID) who scrutinized the records and found that four youth had been selected despite failing the physical test. The DSP recommended a CBI inquiry.
In his report submitted to IG on Friday, the DSP recommended a CBI inquiry and an investigation into the role of police officials involved in the selection. The IGP, Pardeep Srivastava has now asked SP (Operations) R.S. Ghumman to probe the case.
It has taken four years for the inquiry report. but that aside, lets first find out how the wrong selections had come to light. It was a Chandigarh constable aspiring to become an ASI who first complained of wrong selections and gave the names of four men who, he said, were selected although they were ineligible. The department sat on his complaint and it was about a year later that a Panchkula resident too approached the Home Secretary about the case.
It was then that the Chandigarh police initiated the inquiry. This interestingly is the same scam in which Chandigarh police arrested two constables for allegedly leaking the ASI recruitment paper leak itself. They have been booked on the charges of cheating and criminal conspiracy.One of them, constable Amardeep Singh, had reportedly paid Rs 10 lakh to procure the question papers.
