PSC to go ahead with KAP recruitment

The Kerala Public Service Commission (PSC) will discuss the interim inquiry report submitted by the Crime Branch on Monday and expedite steps to fill the vacancies of 2,752 civil police officers (CPOs) in the Kerala Armed Police (KAP).

Commission chairman M.K. Sakeer told The Hindu here on Thursday that the Crime Branch probe had fixed the onus for the scam on three accused and had found that the examination system of the commission had not been breached and no staff or other candidates were involved in irregularities conducted by the three accused candidates.

The three accused have been disqualified from appearing for the commission’s examinations. The commission meeting on Monday will discuss the report and decide to issue recruitment advice to other candidates.

“This is the day that the commission has been waiting for ever since the scam erupted. Now it has been proved that our examination system is intact and our credibility has not suffered any beating. The irregularities committed by the accused have not cast any slur on our image and the commission would go ahead with the recruitment process, so that the hopes of the 10,000-odd candidates who figure on the list and the three-lakh candidates who sat for the examination will not be dashed, Mr. Sakeer said.
