APSC member arrested in Assam
RANGIA/ GUWAHATI: Assam Public Service Commission member Samedur Rahman was arrested on Wednesday from Rangia near Guwahati on alleged charges of corruption in the organisation as the state government has formed a Special Supervisory Team (SST) to monitor the ongoing probe.
On November 7, the state government had probed into alleged corruption in Assam Public Service Commission by its beleaguered Chairman Rakesh Kumar Paul.
Police from neighbouring Baksa district, where he was reportedly in hiding, surrounded Rahman’s house in Rangia acting on a tip-off. They informed police in Guwahati and the special investigating police team from Dibrugarh which earlier arrested APSC Chairman Rakesh Kumar Paul on November 4, police said.
Rahman’s name came to light in connection with the cash-for-job scam when his security officer Mabud Ali Choudhury was arrested, based on engineer Naba Kanta Patir’s statement. (PTI)
