The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday raided three locations in Delhi-NCR in connection with alleged irregularities during an examination held for recruitment in the Border Security Force, officials said.

The CBI has registered a case against Ravi Kumar, a resident of Ghaziabad, in connection with the alleged irregularities.

India Today TV has learnt that the raids were conducted on Saturday morning at the premises connected to the accused in Delhi, Ghaziabad and Gurugram.

The CBI is investigating a case wherein it has been alleged that there were irregularities in the evaluation of OMR sheets in an examination held for recruitment of constables in the Border Security Force (BSF). It is alleged that these irregularities were on part of some BSF officials. Besides them, an outsourced private firm based at Patparganj Industrial Area, New Delhi is also accused of irregularities.

Officials claim that the alleged irregularities resulted in ineligible candidates being called for medical tests by the BSF.

“It has been alleged that a private person obtained illegal money from candidates appearing for written examinations of constables (tradesmen) in BSF,” the CBI said.

Sources in the CBI say some BSF certain officials in connivance with the private firm took bribe from candidates in exchange of promising recruitment in BSF.
