APSC Scam: Rakesh Paul, the former corrupt chairman of the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC), will be released from prison. He was granted bail by the High Court.

He had previously been granted bail in four other instances. Rakesh Paul will be released from prison shortly.

The Gauhati High Court granted bail to former Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) Chairman Rakesh Kumar Paul in a case filed against him at the Bhangagarh Police Station. This development clears the way for his release from jail, as he had already obtained bail in other cases related to the APSC cash-for-job scam.

Paul was arrested in November 2016 and has been detained since then. He has been accused of taking bribes in exchange for government jobs. The case has been ongoing for several years, causing widespread outrage and protests throughout the state.

 

The decision of the Gauhati High Court to grant bail to Paul in this case is a significant development in the case. He still faces several other charges related to the scam, which he will have to fight in court.

The APSC cash-for-job scam is one of the most serious corruption scandals to have hit Assam in recent years. It has caused distrust in the government and the state’s public service commission. The public has been watching the investigation and subsequent legal proceedings with bated breath, hoping that justice will be served.

Overall, while Rakesh Kumar Paul’s release on bail is a significant development, it is only one step in a lengthy legal process that is still ongoing. The case serves as a stark reminder of the importance of transparency and accountability in government appointments, as well as upholding the rule of law in the country.
