DEHRADUN, Oct. 10, 2022 (TBINN)
Uttarakhand’s Special Task Force (S.T.F.) arrested former chairman of Uttarakhand Subordinate Services Selection Commission (U.K.S.S.C.) and former principal chief conservator of forests, R.B.S. Rawat, former secretary of the Commission Manohar Singh Kanyal and former examination controller R.S. Pokharia for the alleged scam in the village Panchayat development officer (V.P.D.O.) examination conducted by the commission in 2016.
These arrests are the biggest action taken by S.T.F. in the recruitment scam investigation so far. The action is stated to have been encouraged by Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami’s policy of zero tolerance for corruption.
Appreciating the action taken by S.T.F., Dhami said the investigating agencies are doing their job. Nobody who has played with the rights of the state’s youths will be spared. Government is ensuring that all recruitment exams are clean and transparent in future. The action taken by state’s S T.F. is an example to warn anyone against orchestrating malpractices in these exams in the future.
