Bolnagir: The vigilance department today filed final charge-sheet against former Bolnagir Collector Debraj Mishra and 44 others including three OAS officers in connection with much hyped job recruitment scam.
Out of total 45, 41 accused are facing non-bailable warrant. Some of them have already obtained bail.
In 2014, the vigilance had arrested the then Collector Mishra on the charge of irregularities in the recruitment of Revenue Inspectors and Amins.
Mishra was placed under suspension in September last after prime facie evidences were received against him.
Four OAS officers in the scam are Anita Panda, Binod Bihari Das, Raghunath Mundari and Ripunath Suna.
Gross irregularities were found in the recruitment of RIs and Amins in Balangir district during Mishra’s tenure as collector between August 2012 and July 2013, they said.
It was found that some candidates securing only two marks in the RI/Amin recruitment examination had been selected for jobs, while a candidate with 98 marks was denied appointment, they said.
