J&K LG scrap police SI recruitment; recommends CBI probe
SRINAGAR: On Friday, the LG of Jammu and Kashmir cancelled the police sub-inspector (SI) recruitment after the allegations of irregularities. The LG further has recommended a CBI probe while selecting candidates for police SI. Manoj Sinha tweeted that the culprits will be brought soon.
“JKP Sub-Inspector recruitment has been cancelled & a CBI probe has been recommended into the selection process. Culprits will be brought to justice soon,” Sinha said.
“It’s a first big step towards securing future of our youth & govt will soon decide future course of action for fresh recruitment,” the LG said. Last month, Sinha had ordered an inquiry into the selection of police sub-inspectors after allegations of fraud in the recruitment process surfaced.
As soon as the result was declared the result online, students who didn’t clear the exam went out and alleged the selection process fraud. A total of 1,200 candidates successfully have been declared by the Jammu and Kashmir services selection board on June 4, 2022. And around 97,000 candidates appeared in the exam for the post of SI.
