Former DGP under scanner in recruitment 'scam'

Early Times Report
Jammu, Jan 18: With the state High Court having put on hold the appointment orders of 482 Sub Inspectors in the Jammu and Kashmir Police following complaints of irregularities in the selection process, a former Director General of Police has allegedly come under scanner.
The High Court has put on hold the appointment orders for the posts advertised by Jammu and Kashmir Police in 2016.
The written test for the same was held in summer of 2018 and that same examinations have been challenged by petitioners who aspired for the posts.
Some of the aggrieved candidates had approached the High Court alleging "foul play" and sought transparency in the selection process and got the selection list stayed.
The single bench of High Court of Justice Rashid Ali Dar directed that appointment orders of the selected SIs shall not be issued till response supported by the affidavits of government and members of selection committee is brought on record.
"All record pertaining to selection shall be indexed and preserved and kept ready for perusal of the court along with record pertaining to action initiated, if any, on receipt of complaints received from aggrieved candidates for probe into irregularities and discrepancies," Justice Dar said.
The Court directed official respondents to file their response in the matter by or before next date of hearing on February 11.
While the government is bound to file a response before the Court, sources said DGP who headed the department during summer 2018 when the exams were held has allegedly come under scanner.
"The issue is likely to snowball into a controversy and he (then DGP) will be answerable if the list is found doubtful, because there were already complaints against his family trying to interfere in such matters for alleged personal gains," said a senior official on the condition of anonymity.
Sources said New Delhi had received several complaints against a close family member of the said official for trying to poke her nose in the official matters.
As per the complainants, the police department had "facilitated mass copying in Centre No. 1171111 where 620 candidates appeared out of whom 449 were shortlisted for interview wherein 185 candidates have been selected and 39 have been waitlisted."
Officials said what has raised more eyebrows about the issue is that one particular candidate from Kashmir was made to appear in the exams from the same "influential exam center."
"One of the selectees hailing from Kashmir was permitted to appear in the examination at Jammu though in terms of the Advertisement Notification, he had to appear in the examination at Srinagar. It clearly reflects the malafide intentions of the official respondents," the petitioners have prayed.
Despite repeated attempts the said official couldn't be contacted for comments.
