GUWAHATI, Sept 29 - The Gauhati High Court on Monday deferred to October 5 the hearing of two public interest litigations (PILs) filed by KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi and others, alleging large-scale anomalies in the civil services examination conducted by the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC).
The PILs, filed by Gogoi, had raised the issue of disproportionate assets acquired by the incumbent APSC chairman Rakesh Paul.
In this regard, the petitioners placed reliance upon a letter written by Mukul Saikia in 2013, when he was Superintendent of Police (Law, Vigilance and Anti-corruption), to the Director General of Police (Vigilance and Anti-corruption) about Paul�s alleged disproportionate assets.
Senior advocates PK Tiwari and Bhaskar Dev Konwar have been appointed as amicus curiae. Senior advocate SS Dey appeared for Paul, while the State of Assam was represented by Assam Advocate General AC Buragohain.
