Allegations of scam in CG police recruitment: Candidates filed petition in High Court, raised demand for CBI inquiry

Virendra Gahwai, Bilaspur. More than half a dozen candidates have filed a writ petition in the High Court alleging malpractices and scams in the Subedar, Sub Inspector recruitment examination held in Chhattisgarh and have demanded a CBI inquiry into the matter. The petitioners have demanded that the Director General of Police Ashok Juneja should be excluded from the recruitment committee and disciplinary action should be taken as well as a new recruitment committee should be constituted.

In fact, Shivaji Singh, a resident of Dongargarh, has filed a writ petition in the High Court through High Court advocates Abhishek Pandey and Ghanshyam Sharma, stating that in the year 2021, 975 vacant posts of subedar, sub-inspector and platoon commander and others will be filled by DGP Ashok Juneja. Advertisement for the recruitment was released. Recruitment committee chairman DGP Ashok Juneja and other members have deliberately committed serious irregularities and disturbances.

Giving information about the irregularities in the petition, the petitioners have said that in the years 2006-2008 and 2011-2013, Vyapam had conducted the pre and mains examination under the sub-inspector recruitment examination and Vyapam itself had released the result. The result of the pre-examination and main examination for the year 2021-2023 was prepared by Vyapam with transparency, but the chairman of the recruitment committee, DGP Ashok Juneja, stopped Vyapam from issuing the result of the main examination. The result of the main examination was released by them only by serial number. Important information including the names of the candidates was suppressed.

The petitioners have presented a copy of the Calcutta High Court’s Division Bench order dated June 15, 2023, which states that a CBI inquiry can be ordered if irregularities are found in the recruitment examination. On this basis, a CBI inquiry has been demanded.
