DSSSB PRT 2017 paper leak: Manish Sisodia writes to L-G demanding a CBI probe
Seeking a CBI probe into the alleged Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board (DSSSB) PRT test paper leak, Delhi's Education Minister Manish Sisodia has written to L-G Anil Baijal demanding stringent action against the officers involved in the scam. Sisodia has also conjointly alleged corruption within the teacher appointment process.

The Indian Express had reported on October 30 that eight people had been arrested by the police for their alleged involvement in leaking the exam paper for recruitment of primary school teachers in MCD schools. The accused had told the police that they had been lured by a government employee, working as a physical training inspector, who had promised them to pay Rs 2 lakh.

Sisodia also said in his letter that since the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) had not taken any action against the involved DSSSB officers, he wants the case to be transferred to the CBI. Notably, DSSSB which regularly conducts exams for recruitment of various positions in the Delhi government, reports to the Lieutenant Governor.

Through the letter, Sisodia has also demanded immediate suspension of the officers involved in conducting the examination so that they are denied the opportunity of destroying evidence. Apart from allegations of corruption, in his letter Sisodia also highlighted suspected foul play in papers being set from a single guide book and also the servers being down at the time when documents were to be uploaded.

Manish Sisodia said, "While there have been instances of applicants being barred from the exam for cheating, no action has been taken against any senior officer in DSSSB. Strong action needs to be taken so as to give a clear message that the L-G's office is not protecting corruption within DSSSB."
