Ranchi: There has been massive rigging in the first and second JPSC exams. According to the information given by the CBI in the High Court, the investigation so far has revealed that not only the marks were increased by overwriting the answer sheets of about 100 candidates, but they were also given more marks in the interview. This has also been confirmed in the investigation by FSL (Forensic Science Laboratory).
In this, the then president and member of JPSC Radha Govind Nagesh and co-ordinator Parmanand Singh played a very important role. After this information given by CBI in the High Court, the court has asked the government as to what action has been taken so far against the officers against whom the allegations have been prima facie found to be true.
In fact, Buddhadev Oraon had filed a PIL in 2008 alleging irregularities in various examinations conducted by JPSC. Hearing this, the High Court had directed for a CBI inquiry into these examinations and had put a stay on the appointment.
The candidates affected by this order of the High Court had taken refuge in the Supreme Court. Here the candidates got relief. The Supreme Court had rejected the High Court’s order to stop the appointment process but upheld the order for a CBI investigation.
At present, the division bench of Jharkhand High Court Chief Justice Sanjay Kumar Mishra and Justice Ananda Sen is hearing this entire matter. The court will now hear this case on November 9.
