Health officials indicted in recruitment 'scam'

PTI, PANAJI | 09 July 2012 18:38 IST

An inquiry by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) into recruitments by the state health department violating election code of conduct has revealed several irregularities.

Superintendent of Police (ACB) Bosco George today confirmed that the interim report has been submitted to the vigilance department.

He howver refused to divulge any details.

Sources said that the report has indicted health department officials in the recruitment process.

It is not clear whether former health minister Vishwajit Rane has also been indicted in the report.

The inquiry was initiated by the Manohar Parrikar-led government when it was found that bogus offer letters were distributed to youths in the run up to the state legislative assembly elections.

The state government, after initiating inquiry, had kept on hold around 250 odd job recruitments.

The letters of offer were apparently given during the election code of conduct. Parrikar had told reporters that every aspect of the scam would be investigated, including the possibility of former health minister Rane’s involvement in the racket.

The chief minister had stated that the process under Anti-Corruption Act would be initiated, if it was found that jobs were given to gain votes.
