In a year and a half, irregularities came to the fore in eight examinations, five canceled, 66 accused arrested

Recruitment scams did not stop in the state. After the Uttarakhand Subordinate Services Selection Commission (UKSSSC), now within a month, two cases of cheating mafia have come to the fore in the State Public Service Commission (UKPSC) examinations as well.
In total, irregularities have been detected in eight recruitment examinations in Uttarakhand within a year and a half. Five of these exams had to be cancelled. The remaining three are still under investigation.
Section Officer Sanjeev Kumar Absconded:
Since 2015, 66 accused have been arrested for rigging these recruitment examinations conducted by UKSSSC and UKPSC for 3314 posts.
The masterminds of this rigging, who have been arrested by the Special Task Force and SIT of Uttarakhand Police, include former UKSSSC President Dr. RBS Rawat, former Secretary Manohar Singh Kanyal, former Controller of Examinations Rajendra Singh Pokharia and suspended section officer of UKPSC Sanjeev Chaturvedi.
