Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has directed the chairman of State Level Police Recruitment Board (SLPRB), Pradeep Kumar, to conduct re-examination for the posts of sub-inspector in the Assam Police, which was cancelled minutes after it had commenced due to leaking of question paper on September 20, within a month.
The CM directed this while taking stock of the developments following the cancellation of the exam in a review meeting in Guwahati on September 21 evening, just after returning from New Delhi.
Sonowal directed the chairman to conduct the examination in the most transparent manner and declare results at the earliest. He also instructed Kumar to ensure that no such anomalies take place while conducting re-examination.
Sonowal asked the DGP to identify the nexus which conspired to spoil the recruitment process and give strict punishment to the culprits as soon as possible.
DGP Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta informed the CM about the steps taken by the Assam Police to apprehend the culprits.
