A team of Dibrugarh police probing in the APSC scam on Friday questioned around two dozen civil and police officers who were alleged to have bribed the commission authority to ensure selection in the combined competition examination in 2014/15.
They include the son of a former Cabinet minister Nilomoni Sen Deka who were questioned on their alleged link with APSC chairman Rakesh Paul whom police arrested last year.
These officers,mostly, were summoned to the special branch headquarters in Kahilipara near Dispur on the basis of the confessional statements of Paul apart from some other sensational evidences suggesting their unfair means to get selected for the state’s top category civil and police jobs.
The police team is learnt to have gathered strong evidence to implicate most of them in view of their answer scripts seized from the APSC strong room in addition to a few others recovered from the house of Paul during a raid.
They were given to write note in blank pages to examine their handwritings which would help the investigators corroborate the revelations. According to sources, the investigators have marked some discrepancies in many answer scripts of the qualifying examination.
