APSC cash-for-job scam: Guwahati High Court denies recording of statement of judge
The Guwahati High Court has, reportedly, denied the news about recording of the statement of a judge, whose name was dragged into the nexus which, allegedly, had tried to bribe the judiciary for securing bail for some arrested accused in the Assam Public Service Commission's cash-for-job scam.

A local newspaper on Saturday reported that the high court had recorded the statement of the judge on Friday. However, the Guwahati High Court has clarified that it had not recorded statement of any judge, terming the news as baseless.

A judge, on the other hand, has reportedly, taken leave of three days. Controversies erupted when media started to report that a nexus of touts and some influential people had, allegedly, tried to bribe the judiciary for securing bail for some arrested accused in the scam case.

The police had arrested two touts namely Sailen Sarma Baruah and Surajit Choudhury, on the charges, for allegedly, forging a nexus for bribing the judiciary for securing bail for some arrested accused in the scam case. The duo had, allegedly, collected huge amount of money from the accused promising bail, sources revealed.

Choudhury's wife, a dismissed Assam Civil Service officer has also been arrested in the case. She, along with some other accused in the case, is currently lodged in the Guwahati Central Jail.

The APSC cash-for-job scam was unearthed two years ago immediately after the BJP-led regime formed government at the state. The police have arrested 66 accused in the scam so far including Rakesh kumar Paul, the Commission's suspended chairman.
