PSI Recruitment Scam: Karnataka CM Bommai Assures Action Against Guilty

New Delhi: Asserting everything related to the police sub-inspector (PSI) recruitment scam will be thoroughly investigated, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Saturday said action will be taken against those found guilty.

“Everything related to the PSI recruitment scam will be thoroughly investigated and action will be taken against those found guilty,” ANI reported Bommai as saying.

Earlier on Friday, the Chief Minister said Divya Hagaragi, who is allegedly involved in the PSI recruitment scam, will be arrested soon.

Bommai said the CID has already arrested 12 persons, including Hagaragi’s husband.

“Divya is the head of Jnanajyoti English Medium School of Kalaburgi,” he added.

Emphasizing that his government would not hesitate to dig deep into the PSI recruitment scam, Bommai said: “We handed over the investigation of the scam to the CID soon after it was unearthed.”

Taking potshots at the Congress, the Chief Minister said the leaders of the grand old party were making “baseless allegations” despite this move.

“They (Congress leaders) never even uttered a word about the scams that came to light during their tenure nor did they complete the investigation into some of the scandals that took place earlier,” he alleged.

Earlier this week, the CID officials raided the house of Hagaragi, the former president of Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) women’s unit in Kalaburagi district, in connection with the alleged PSI recruitment examination scam.

While Hagrangi was not at home during the raid earlier on Monday, her husband Rajesh was arrested for not cooperating with the probe.

The CID officials said it was found during the investigation that malpractice took place at Jnana Jyothi English Medium School, which was run by the BJP worker.

The school was one of the centres where the PSI recruitment examination was held earlier in October last year.

The CID registered a case on April 9 after it was discovered that marks were forged by a few aspirants.
