To hush-up matter


At a time when all out efforts are being made to hush up ‘illegal’ activities in the major recruiting agency of Jammu and Kashmir, the Crime Branch has begun preliminary enquiry into forgery of policy documents of Public Service Commission. Moreover, a three member committee of the Forensic Science Laboratory has corroborated the earlier report about counterfeiting of certain documents, which is aimed at maintaining the deep rooted nexus of some members, officials and consultants of the Commission in order to deprive Jammu of its due share in the recruitment for gazetted posts in various Government departments. As in this report the FSL has explicitly established forgery of policy documents by the Public Service Commission, the Crime Branch would have no other option but to go in for registration of formal FIR after completion of preliminary enquiry. The complainant has sought registration of FIR against all those who were involved in forging of policy documents and subverting the entire selection process to the disadvantage of meritorious candidates thereby deriding a constitutional institution into an organized recruitment mafia. Instead of getting the matter enquired on the basis of FSL report obtained earlier, the Chairman of PSC again approached Director FSL for getting the documents re-examined. Moreover, he, in his formal letter in this regard, requested for getting the process done only in Kashmir without specifying any reason behind such an unwarranted plea.
It is not understandable as to why no seriousness is being shown in getting the guilty punished so that trust of the people in this major recruiting agency of the State is restored. It is pertinent to mention here that soon after appointment of new Chairman and Members of the Public Service Commission (PSC), a meeting of the major recruiting agency was convened on July 28, 2015 and several decisions were taken aimed at exercising utmost impartiality, objectivity and efficiency in its functioning and being fair to all in the selections for various posts in the Government departments. The Directorate of J&K Forensic Science Laboratory in its report No.32/DOC/FSL/2017 dated May 22, 2017 established forgery of initials of Tashi Dorje, the then Member of the Public Service Commission. Even two initial pages of the minutes have also been found to be tampered with. Now, it is to be seen whether the Government takes steps to streamline the functioning of Public Service Commission by acting on two reports of Forensic Science Laboratory or continues to shut its eyes towards the startling revelations and allow the nexus to continue.
