Postal department hiring: CBI conducts raid in Bihar
PATNA: The CBI on Friday conducted raids at 16 different places located in Sitamarhi and Samastipur districts in connection with the irregularities detected in the appointment of Gramin Dak Sevaks. These appointments were made by the postal department in 2008 and 2012.
Confirming the raids, CBI DIG B K Singh said the CBI sleuths detected 17 such appointments in Sitamarhi and 13 in Samastipur district. "Though no arrest has been made so far in the matter, a thorough investigation is on to nab the real culprits behind such appointments," he said. Singh said the appointments were made after preparing a merit list on the basis of marks obtained in class X by the candidates irrespective of their board. All these 30 candidates were prima facie appointed on the basis of fake Madhyama certificates purportedly issued by Sanskrit Shiksha Board, he said.
