No respite for absconding ACS officer

GUWAHATI: There seems to be no respite for Nishamoni Deka as the Gauhati High Court on Monday refused to grant anticipatory bail for the ACS officer who is on the run.

Hearing the anticipatory bail plea, the high court straightly rejected it and asked the special operation unit probing the APSC scam to submit the case diary by December 15.

Earlier, Deka moved a plea before the Special court to grant her anticipatory bail citing her two month old baby. When rejected, she moved the high court which upheld the ruling.


Deka along with another accused ACS officer have yet to be arrested by the police in connection with the APSC scam where they along with 23 others resorted to forgery to clear the civil service examination in 2013.
