GUWAHATI: The State CID registered a case (5/2022) against the detection of 414 fake computer certificates submitted by candidates in the recent recruitment in the police force.

Talking to the media today, DGP Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta said, "We asked the superintendents of police concerned to verify the genuineness of the computer certificates submitted by 414 candidates. During the verification, we found the certificates of the 414 candidates fake. The institutes that issued the certificates are not genuine."

The DGP said, "The advertisements were of 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 for 14 different categories of posts. Though we advertised the posts separately, we conducted the selection process together as the posts are of the same rank. We did it to cut costs and time. The SEBA (Board of Secondary Education, Assam) conducted the written examination and declared the results on March 3, 2022. We declared the final results on May 12, after around two-month assessment."

The DGP said, "We selected 8,867 candidates – 7,756 males (87.48 per cent) and 1,111 females (12.52 per cent). These include 4,270 AB, including 360 females (8.43 per cent). Our target of female personnel in AB was 10 per cent. Among the 2,391 selected for UB, 569 are females (23.79 per cent). It is a record recruitment of females in UB. We followed the rules of the government regarding reservations. Of course, some posts remained vacant due to lack of category-wise candidates."

The DGP asked the newly recruited candidates to report to their recruiting authorities on Monday. They will get their places of posting within a day or two, he said.

The DGP cautioned the newly appointed constables not to compromise on duty. 'Police should remain police under all circumstances,' he said.
