GUWAHATI, June 5 - Dibrugarh police probing the cash-for-job scam in the Assam State Public Service Commission (APSC) has summoned 25 officers for questioning.

Sources said among those summoned are six APS offices and thirteen ACS officers. The others are officers in the excise, sales tax and other departments. One of the officers is the son of a former minister, sources added.

The officers had appeared in the State civil services mains examination and interview in the year 2014 (the advertisement of which was published in 2013) and were appointed in 2015. The officers have been called to the Administrative Staff College here where they will be examined by the investigating team.

The officers have been summoned based on statements given by arrested APSC assistant controller of examinations Pabitra Kaibarta and forensic tests of answer scripts conducted by the investigators.

Police have so far arrested 11 accused in the cash-for-jobs scam. Two accused, including the brother of key accused Rakesh Paul, are absconding.

Dibrugarh police had seized nearly 1,000 answer scripts from the strong room of the APSC office last month, and many of them were suspected to be fake. The markings in some fake answer scripts were done by Paul himself, a fact that has been corroborated by forensic experts.

Some of the answer scripts were not printed in the Government Press and instead were reprinted in the printing press owned by Rakesh Paul�s brother Rajesh Paul, who is still absconding.

Three ACS officers were arrested last month in connection with the case. More officers, who allegedly got jobs in lieu of cash, are also under scanner, police said.

It may be mentioned that the cash-for-job scam involving the APSC has created a widespread sensation in the State. While the main kingpin of the scam Rakesh Paul, the disgraced former APSC chairman, is behind the bars, it is expected that more arrests will be made in this regard.
