Guwahati, Nov 22 (TIWN) Over 65,000 candidates in 150 centres across 33 districts on Sunday appeared for the written examination of 597 posts of unarmed Assam police Sub-Inspectors (SI) for the second time, two months after a massive scam of leaking question paper, officials said.

The CID (Criminal Investigation Department) and other agencies including the crime branch are investigating the previous question paper leak scam of recruitment of SI and so far arrested 58 people including former Assam Police DIG Prasanta Kumar Dutta, a Superintendent of Police rank officer and younger brother of former Chief Secretary Kumar Sanjit Krishna and ruling Bharatiya Janata Party leader Diban Deka.  The CID sleuths also recovered around Rs 5.37 crore from the state’s three western districts, including Barpeta in connection with the scam. The investigation is being personally supervised by Assam Director General of Police (DGP) Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta.
