Assam Police arrested eight persons who had allegedly submitted forged documents during the police recruitment drive this year.
Based on a complaint lodged by the nodal officer, State Level Police Recruitment Board about submission of fake computer certificates by certain selected candidates of AB, UB, fire services and APRO constable posts, CID has registered a case and started investigation.
“All such candidates were called to CID HQ and interrogated and several incriminating documents were seized from them.

The superintendent of police of CID said that various documents like the attendance registers, fee collection registers, admission letters, counterfoils of fee receipts, examination results etc. were collected from those institutes.
“The specimen handwritings and signatures of the concerned owners and charges of these computer institutions were collected and sent to FSL for scientific analysis and comparison with the questioned computer certificates submitted by the accused candidates. The results of the scientific analysis of FSL in several cases are still awaited, however, based on the reports already furnished by the FSL, eight such candidates have been arrested,” the SP of CID said.
