GUWAHATI:

Over 62,000 candidates are set to appear in the written examination for the recruitment of Assam police sub-inspectors for the second time on Sunday, two months after a scam that saw the leaking of its question paper.

Assam Police spokesperson said that over 62,000 candidates have downloaded the admit cards for the written examination for 597 posts of unarmed sub-inspectors on Sunday across 150 centres in all the districts.

The investigation by multiple agencies of Assam Police into the question paper leak scandal has led to the arrest of 58 persons so far from different parts of the state and outside and has seen seizure of nearly Rs six crore from the accused.

On September 20, the question paper for the written examination got leaked and the State Level Police Recruitment Board (SLPRB) cancelled the test minutes after it had commenced across the state. (PTI)
