Accused police official now APTC principal

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 1 � Even after being charge-sheeted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), BR Das, presently serving as the Superintendent of Police, Special Branch, Zonal office in Jorhat, has been appointed as the principal in-charge of the Assam Police Training College (APTC), Dergaon, a development which has not gone down well with various sections concerned.

Das has taken over the charge as the principal in-charge of the college today in place of TP Singh, who has gone on leave for a month.

Das is one of the 27 accused recently charge-sheeted by the CBI, including three Indian Police Service officers.

"It would be a bad precedent as far as imparting training to aspiring police officers are concerned. I know that the charges have been not proved in the court of law as yet but certainly this would not send the right message to the budding police officers enrolled in the college," a senior Assam Police official said.

The anomalies in the 3rd APBn came to the fore in 2007 when it was discovered that around Rs 18 crore were siphoned off in the name of fake appointments from 2001-2006. Subsequently, the CID took up the case and during investigation involvement of many senior police officials were found.

The CBI took over the case in 2009. The charge-sheet was filed on February 19 this year with the Special Court, CBI, Guwahati.
