Chandigarh, September 27, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has come down heavily on the matter related to the hi-tech cheating case in the police recruitment test (sub-inspector posts) held recently, demanding strict measures to be taken in this regard.
In a statement issued here on Monday, AAP MLA and party’s Youth Wing state president, Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer demanded the newly appointed Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi-led Congress government to conduct a judicial inquiry into the hi-tech cheating case during the written test held for sub-inspector posts last month; in which six persons were arrested for their suspected involvement.
Meet Hayer also demanded that the government should carry out a time-bound probe in the matter under the supervision of a sitting High Court judge. “The Chief Minister should ensure recruitment of meritorious youth on the basis of merit.
Several fraudsters, scamsters and touts are active without any fear. They try to lure, trick and cheat gullible individuals and are involved in various malpractices; hindering the examination process. Such culprits should be zeroed-in with stern action,” he said.
The AAP leader said the government must intensify the crackdown on leakage of exam papers and cheating with furthering security measures in view of reported attempts by fraudsters to sabotage the examination process.
On the arrest of six people so far for their suspected involvement in the cheating case during the written test for sub-inspector posts, Meet Hayer said the state government should probe the matter in depth as the gang of cheaters and fraudsters could have links with some officials and politicians; which may provide further leads.
