The Jammu and Kashmir government on Thursday ordered a probe into the recent recruitment of police sub-inspectors after public apprehensions about the fairness of the selection.
The time-bound probe is to be headed by R.K. Goyal, additional chief secretary (Home).
The result for the selection was announced by the Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Board (JKSSB) on June 4.
Speaking at a function, Lt.Governor Manoj Sinha said, “From the last few days, newspaper reports have brought into question the sub-inspector recruitment by JKSSB.
“We have decided that a committee headed by additional Chief Secretary Home, R.K. Goyal will inquire into it within a time-bound manner and if any fraud is found, the process shall be annulled and recruitment will be made in a transparent manner.
“No fingers were pointed at any other recruitment done so far and if there are apprehensions in the minds of people, it is the duty of the administration to carry out an impartial probe and take necessary action.”
