PK Dutta names MLAs, Assam Police officers during interrogation in SI Scam


GUWAHATI: Former deputy inspector general of police (DIG) PK Dutta, one of the prime accused in the Assam Police sub-inspector (SI) recruitment scam reportedly revealed names of many influential personalities involved in the scam that rocked the state. Dutta who is being grilled by the criminal investigation department (CID) revealed the modus operandi of the nexus to leak the question papers.

The former top cop handed over the question papers in advance to the expelled BJP leader Diban Deka. Based on the leaked question papers, Deka was entrusted with the responsibility of providing training to the candidates at various locations across the state. He is now under CID custody.

Dutta was reportedly helped by some Assam Police officers in exam question paper leak. He also revealed names of some MLAs.

Meanwhile, Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Ripun Bora demanded a fair investigation into the case.

“This scam is never possible without the political patronage. PK Dutta is not the prime accused. The mastermind is someone else,” Bora said.

Lok Sabha MP Gaurav Gogoi also criticised the role of chief minsiter Sarbananda Sonowal.

“Chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal is acting like the Dhritarashtra. He has not seen the scam and the market of jobs. Only a single person is not involved in this scam. There may be many,” Gaurav said.
