New Delhi: With the arrest of an inspector general of Central Reserve Police Force, or CRPF, along with a commandant of the force in a recruitment scam, CRPF Director General A.S. Gill on Wednesday said the force was planning to “change” the entire process.
“I condemn the incident. We are planning to change the recruitment process,” the CRPF chief said, adding the force had itself written to the CBI asking them to keep a check on the ongoing recruitment process in various parts of the country.
His reaction came following the arrest of Inspector General (Bihar) Pushkar Singh along with seven others by the Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday for alleged corruption and bungling in the recruitment of the ranks for its anti-naxal force COBRA.
The CBI made the arrests in connection with the scam after it conducted searches at 20 locations spread in Punjab, Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.
