GUWAHATI, Oct 8 - The Gauhati High Court on Monday granted bail to five more government officials who were arrested by Dibrugarh Police in connection with the APSC cash-for-job scam.
Those allowed bail are Himangshu Choudhury, Kamal Debnath, Aniruddha Roy, Raju Sahu and Jayanta Kumar Nath.
So far, the Gauhati High Court has allowed 17 accused, mostly Assam Civil Service (ACS) and Assam Police Service (APS) officers, to go on bail.
Meanwhile, the court refrained from giving any relief to another three accused � Jaydeb Mahanta, Pallabi Sarma Choudhury and Nishamoni Deka, whose bail petitions too came up for hearing today. The prosecution opposed the bail for the trio citing the recent developments in the ongoing probe.
The court has asked the investigators to submit the case diary in the next hearing fixed on Thursday.
