In a time span of a month and a half, the consistent and exclusive revelations by Newsd on biggest ever fraud in the recruitment of Bihar Police Constables is on a verge to give crystal clear signals of state-sponsored forgery during the selection procedure.
In the very first report, we came up with visual evidence in context of, numerous cases of appearance of “Fake Candidates” which popped up simultaneously in 11districts of Bihar. A circular from Central Selection Board of Constable (CSBC) said:
“According to letter number 922 of Central Selection Board (CSB) dated 22nd June 2018, 96 selected candidates from the written examination of CSB reached Jamui, Bihar Military Police (BMP) 11 to appear for Physical Entrance Test (PET) out of which 37 were male candidates and 59 candidates were female.”
The discrepancies found in fake candidates were-handwriting, signature, thumb impression and altered height and chest width.
State government’s deliberate blind eye towards the large-scale forgery in recruitment came to light when open confessions of two public servants did not bother anyone in the government. These confessions were as follows-
- The BMP commandant, Safi-ul-Haq expressed his concern on irregularities in the recruitment process, which was a clue indicating a big forgery in the selection of Bihar Police Constables.
- Rajiv Mishra, the SSP Gaya, publicly acknowledged the rampant fraud.
In the second report, the RTI reply from the Central Selection Board of Constable (CSBC) had two different cut off marks for female candidates who appeared for the written exam. This was again a prove indicating massive illegal entry through recruitment procedure. Besides, three innocent and factual candidates were kept in jail for 73 days. Apart from fraud recruitment, the victimisation of the victims was a parallel discourse.
In the third report, there were leaked out documents from CSBC sources which had the detail of fake candidates which were once listed by the CSBC officials’ who already entered the system.
Silent correction in police constable recruitment:
The Central Selection Board of Constable yesterday released a notification regarding the 235 provisionally selected candidates. This circular has clearly listed out total 235 candidates out which 229 candidates have been marked as “Fake Candidates”. On all 229 candidates, a case has been registered.
Selection of 3 candidates and their discrepancies are under investigation and scrutiny.
This streak did not stop here. Out of 235 candidates on whom charges of being fake are put, 3 students are found to have a clear record as their handwriting is found have similarity with those on the exam answer sheet.
Like them, there is a huge number of genuine candidates who were rejected according to in a planned manner and fake candidates were recruited in place of them. If selection parameters like thumb impression, signature, handwriting, height and width are re-matched, this bubble of fraud will burst easily.
The list is as follows:
This list released by the CSBC has many inferences which can easily put the state government in a box of unending questions. The rampant entry of non-deserving students cannot be a mistake on behalf of government and CSBC rather it was a deliberate, intentional and well-thought move to recruit in candidates of choice. This proves nepotism was the choice over the selection of genuine deserving candidates.
Till date, there is not a single word or action from the state government against a selection of fake candidates or ill selection procedure of CSBC.
Till date, the state government has not uttered a single word against ill recruitment methods of CSBC.
In this mishap, leave out punishing the criminals even the innocent individuals were not spared from being marked as fake but the reality remains entirely different. This travesty of justice has added remarkable shame to “Susashan”. The CM, the Deputy CM and the DGP of the state must go through this particular circular which lists out fake candidates who have already become part of the system. Nitish Kumar’s government is ensuring a back door, silent correction on fake candidates who were made to enter the system.
Presently, we may not find any hue & cry about this mass fraud. The government is playing a safe hand by carrying out corrections step by step. Constant pin-pointing of the fraud, forgery and scam in the Bihar Police Constable recruitment by us has finally opened the “Pandora box” for the state government.
