Bail plea of APSC’s chairman Rakesh Paul rejected by Guwahati HC
The Guwahati High Court on Tuesday rejected the bail plea of arrested chairman of Assam Public Service Commission Rakesh Kumar Paul in connection with a bribery case.
Justice Rumi Kumari Phukan rejected the plea considering the nature of the allegations and ruled that the charges against the suspended head of the APSC needed to be properly investigated.
The court said the investigating agency needs to protect the interests of the society at large and so without forming an opinion on the merit of the case, it rejected the bail prayer.
