Submit more than 400 fake certificates for police recruitment: Assam DGP


Guwahati: Assam Police has recently registered a case against more than 400 candidates for submitting fake certificates for recruitment in the force, a senior official said on Sunday.

The officer also said that the CID has taken up the matter and investigation into the matter has been started.
Addressing a press conference here, Director General of Police Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta said that discrepancies in the documents came to light during the verification process.

“Before announcing the final result, we verified the computer performance certificates of each candidate through the concerned superintendent of police. During the verification, 414 certificates were found to be fake,” he said.
Mahanta added, “The CID has already registered a case in this regard.

During a special program here on Saturday, appointment letters were handed over to more than 9,000 personnel of different ranks of the police force.

Mahanta also said that in the latest recruitment drive, Assam Police had set a target of recruiting 10 per cent women in its armed branch and 30 per cent women in its unarmed branch.
He maintained that the target could not be achieved, but the campaign saw the highest recruitment of female personnel by the force at one go.

The DGP said that 91.75 per cent men and 8.43 per cent women were recruited in the armed branch and 76.21 per cent men and 23.79 per cent women in the unarmed branch.

He also said that due to lack of qualified candidates, the posts reserved for Scheduled Tribes (Hills), ex-militants and Village Defense Party personnel could not be filled.
