Etah, Oct 8 (UNI) The police has lodged an FIR against a former DIG on charges of gross irregularities during the selection of constables by the Etah recruitment board during the previous regime led by Mulayam Singh Yadav in Uttar Pradesh.
Official sources today said a probe detected irregularities in the written and physical efficiency tests of 370 constables by the board headed by the then DIG Amar Dutt Tiwari.
Prima facie, Mr Tiwari was found guilty and subsequently a case was registered against him yesterday at the Kotwali police station.

A case was also registered against DIG Ramendra Vikram Singh who was the president of the Moradabd recruitment board in 2005-06. SSP G K Goswami was also a member of this board.
The UP government had registered a case against the then DIG and SSP in Lucknow.

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, when it came to power with a thumping majority in May.
