Sword of dismissal on suspended 20 inspectors, dozens on radar including topper

There has been a stir in the police department due to the intensification of the vigilance investigation of the inspector recruitment scam. 120 constables of the year 2015 batch are under investigation. In this, the investigation is being carried forward by taking the exam topper and others on the radar. All these inspectors are posted in the Kumaon zone. During the investigation of the Uttarakhand Subordinate Services Selection Commission (UKSSSC) paper leak case, the STF had received information about the scam in the recruitment of inspectors in the year 2015 in Uttarakhand.
STF had informed Director General of Police Ashok Kumar in this regard. Orders were issued from the government level to investigate the recruitment scam and vigilance was entrusted with it. Vigilance investigation is on pace and its scope is also increasing. In the year 2015, 339 constables were recruited in Uttarakhand, out of which 120 are posted in Kumaon. In which 46 are posted in Udham Singh Nagar and 38 in Nainital district. Similarly, 15 constables are serving in Pithoragarh and seven each in Almora, Champawat and Bageshwar.
Investigation has been started by taking the records of all the inspectors from the headquarters. According to vigilance sources, the toppers in the constable recruitment are on the radar because they do not know about the functioning of the police. In this case only the toppers will be scrutinized first. The scope of investigation is expected to increase in disproportionate assets: Some more inspectors of the police department may come under vigilance investigation in the case of disproportionate assets.
Inspector Kavindra Sharma posted in Udham Singh Nagar district is under investigation in the State Level Vigilance Committee meeting. There is an allegation against him of amassing disproportionate assets. Police and Home Department have received such complaints. If facts are found in the investigation, the cases can be brought before the State Level Vigilance Committee.
