About Uttarakhand Forest Guard Recruitment Cheating Case
The advertisement was released in May 2018 for the recruitment of 1268 Forest Guard Posts. Its written exam was conducted on 16 February 2020. There was a case of copying through Bluetooth in this. The aggrieved students themselves had filed cases in Pauri and Mangalore. On this, the Haridwar police had arrested 11 people while forming an SIT.
Also 47 selected candidates were marked as copycats. But the government or the commission was not made a party in this case. Later in this case a settlement was reached between the plaintiff and the accused, due to which the case was dismissed in the court. In such a situation, all the accused were released from jail within a few months. Thus the FIRs, despite the arrests of those accused of copying, could not be proved legally.
Now the answer of the government has come in this matter. The Justice Department has clarified that now the government’s side is very weak in this legally. After the case was dismissed by the High Court, the government was also formed in the Supreme Court, but without success. Therefore, there is no option but to give appointment. In this sequence, nine selected candidates have been called for document verification.
