Akhil vs APSC: New revelations

Amid his unrelenting crusade against Assam Public Service Commission, Akhil Gogoi demanded forensic test of the answer sheets of five candidates which would reveal the real picture of the rampant corruption in the ACS examination.

Addressing a press conference in Guwahati on Wednesday, the RTI activist claimed that the five candidates who are shown to have obtain good marks resorted to a murkier deal with the top officials of the commission to ensure their selection.

“Those who bribed were given the question papers in the preliminary round beforehand for Rs 10 lakh and some others were given their answer sheets back after the examination for correction,” said Gogoi.

Producing the photocopies of some answer scripts procured through RTI, the KMSS leader further alleged that many brilliant candidates were not given due marks only to ensure the selection of those who bribed a section of top officials.
