Ex-chairman Of Tribe Board, Three Others In Police Remand For 3 Days | Jaipur News

Jaipur: Senior officers of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) are all set to dig deeper into the corruption racket in which four persons including Gopal Kesawat, former chairman of Rajasthan’s De-notified Nomadic and Semi-nomadic Tribe Welfare Board, were arrested for allegedly taking a bribe of Rs 18.5 lakh from a candidate to help clear the executive officer examination conducted by RPSC. All the four accused were taken into 3-day police remand till July 20 for interrogation to know their affiliation or connection with RPSC officials, if any.
Though Hemant Priyadarshi, ACB’s officiating director general, on Sunday had categorically denied any connection of the four accused with RPSC officials, he had maintained that ACB would certainly investigate this part.
On Monday, ACB applied for 3-day police remand of accused Kesawat, Anil Kumar, Brahm Prakash and Ravindra Sharma, which was granted to them by court.
Also, Priyadarshi on Monday asked additional SP Vijay Meena to lead the team that will interrogate the four accused.
Asked if the team will interrogate the accused on the reason they were naming Manju Sharma, an RPSC member, while alluring the candidate, Priyadarshi said, “We can’t share specifically what would be asked. But let me assure you we will certainly dig deeper into the case to know more about this corruption racket. The complainant had stated that Kesawat and others while alluring him had named Sharma saying they knew her and they would get his OMR sheet changed. But whether they are actually acquainted with her or were just taking names to cheat the candidates is a matter of investigation,” Priyadarshi said while talking to TOI.
