New Delhi: The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) aspirants who were demanding special CBI probe under the surveillance of Supreme Court in the recently held examination in Delhi have got a huge boost when the Delhi High Court approved their petition and notified SSC and Government of India (GOI) and sought reply by July 2018.
A group of 44 aspirants have filed a petition in the Delhi High Court recently seeking re-investigation, transfer of investigation and appointment of an enquiry commission headed by a retired Supreme Court or a High Court judge in connection to the repeated commission of the offences pertaining to cheating and various other offences in the SSC scam.
In the petition, the petitioner argued, the reason this syndicate is still operating successfully is that the person involved from the department (Officials of the SSC) have never either implicated or arrested despite the admission of the SSC Chairman Ashim Khurana to the media.
Veteran Congress leader and SC lawyer, Salman Khurshid is fighting their case. While talking to Ten News, he said, “While hearing the petition, the Delhi HC has notified SSC and GOI and sought their reply in this regard.”
“In the petition, we have demanded, investigation of all the scams and FIRs filed against SSC officials for their involvement in paper leak or scam since 2013 by either a retired Supreme Court judge or High Court judge.”
He further said, “The Court has taken the matter very seriously and the next hearing is on July 26.”
From February 27 to March 16, SSC hold massive protest outside the SSC headquarter demanding CBI probe in the recent paper leak during the SSC examination.
