All these officers have been accused of bribing former APSC Chairman Rakesh Pal, who is also currently in jail, and using unfair means in the examination to qualify for the state civil services.

Along with Paul, 35 officers of Assam Civil Services and Assam Police Services have been arrested so far in connection with the scam.
