    Cash For Job Scam: Prime Accused Ajanta Hazarika Surrenders

    Police have already arrested her husband Simanta Jyoti Hazarika and sent him to judicial custody

    GUWAHATI: Assam Medical College and Hospital (AMCH) doctor Ajanta Hazarika, a key accused in cash for job scam, surrendered before a local court in Dibrugarh on Monday.

    Earlier, her interim bail plea was rejected by the court.

    She was absconding for almost 22 days after Dibrugarh police had registered a case against her following the lodging of an FIR at Gavarupathar Police Station by one Amal Nath and three other youths alleging that she had taken Rs 22 lakh from them in the pretext of offering a job in Indian Railways and OIL.

    Police have already arrested her husband Simanta Jyoti Hazarika and sent him to judicial custody.

    The complainant alleged that he had already transferred half of the amount sought by Ajanta Hazarika to the bank accounts of Rajeev Pasashar at Sixmile in Guwahati.

    Parashar was also accused in a separate case of allegedly extorting money from candidates of various other public service recruitment examinations.
