Expressing regret on behalf of the Commission, the APPSC member – Jarken Gamlin asserted that the accused official Taket Jerang, has been put under suspension, following his arrest on September 16.
Gamlin noted that the accused aspirant – Thomas Gaduk has been debarred from taking any of the commission’s examinations, until the court resolves the issue.
“The commission has been working to streamline and refine the system of setting and evaluating question papers with the sole aim of efficient, transparent and merit-based selection system,” Gamlin added.
He stated that the commission is conducting an internal audit of the office procedure to identify weak links within the system, and undertake corrective measures to prevent such incidents to occur in the future.
So far, 6 people have been apprehended in the “question paper leak fiasco”.
The commission has postponed or cancelled all exams since the arrests, including those for female medical officers, veterinary officers, assistant forest conservators, post-graduate teachers, and dairy development officers.
