CBI takes the internet to the commission’s server room


CALCULATEDOn Monday, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officials investigating the West Bengal School Service Commission (WBSSC) recruitment scam cut internet connections to the commission’s office server room in Salt Lake , in the northern suburbs of Kolkata.

This step was taken, according to CBI officials, to eliminate the risk of the computers in the WBSSC office being hacked or anyone accessing them remotely.

At the same time, CBI detectives also sealed off two WBSSC rooms, which house 14 computers and six almirahs, where crucial documents are stored. Already, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel are in charge of the security of the WBSSC office following an instruction from the single-judge bench of the Kolkata High Court, Judge Abhijit Gangopadhyay.

CBI sources said data stored in the WBSSC official’s computers has crucial links to alleged irregularities in manipulating merit lists for out-of-round recruiting. Given the alleged involvement of state heavyweight executives and ministers, central agency detectives suspect there may be attempts to tamper with or destroy crucial data relating to the recruitment process and , therefore, the detectives took no risks and disconnected the Internet from the server. WBSSC office room.

The CBI has previously interviewed former West Bengal Education Minister and Trinamool Congress General Secretary Partha Chatterjee and current Minister of State for Education Paresh Chandra Adhikari in this regard. The CBI has also filed a new FIR against five former senior WBSSC officials – all of whom were members of the former selection committee appointed by former education minister Partha Chatterjee. Their property, assets and bank details are also under the scanner of the central agency.

Due to the ongoing investigation, the current Minister of Education, Bratya Basu, and Secretary of State for Education, Manish Jain, have canceled their official visits to London.
