Moradabad, Oct 7 (UNI) Police today lodged FIRs against former DIG and SSP on charges of gross irregularities detected during the selection of constables at the Moradabad recruitment board during the previous Mulayam Singh Yadav government in Uttar Pradesh.
Official sources said the then DIG Ramendra Vikram Singh was the president of the recruitment board constituted for the police recruitments in 2005-06. The then SP Dr G K Goswami was also a member of the board.
The Mayawati government on September 11 had suspended 12 senior Indian Police Services (IPS) officers in the state for their involvement in police recruitment scam during the previous Mulayam Singh Yadav government and annulled 14 recruitment boards, in which a total of 6,504 civil police and PAC constables were recruited.
Gross irregularities were also detected at the Moradabad recruitment board, following which, UP government had registered a case against the then DIG and SSP in Lucknow.
Since the case was related to Moradabad, the case was transferred to the city and FIRs lodged against the erring cops at the Civil Lines police station. The Anti-corruption Bureau would investigate the case.
Altogether over 20,000 policemen were recruited during the previous SP regime and several irregularities were detected during the probe conducted by the present BSP government.
