GUWAHATI: Expressing his deep concern over the recent question paper leak case, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Friday reiterated that no individuals involved in the case will be spared.
Taking cognizance of the severity of the question paper leak case, which has become a major embarrassment for the ruling state BJP government, Sonowal said, “The state government will never tolerate such activities which can ruin the future of the youths of the state. No individuals involved in the question paper leak case will be spared.”
The written examinations scheduled on September 20 for recruiting 597 posts of Sub-Inspectors of the Assam police was cancelled due to alleged leak of question papers in the mid of the examination. The examination began at 154 centres across the state on September 20 in which 66,000 candidates appeared for.
“Those who attempted to purchase the question paper set for the scheduled examination will also be equally responsible,” the chief minister said. He also highlighted that the Assam police has been selflessly proceeding in the investigation process to catch the culprits at the earliest.
Earlier, Sonowal directed the state level police recruitment board (SLPRB) to re-conduct the same examination within the next 30 days.
