Several officers of the School Service Commission complained to the court that Subiresh Bhattacharya had taken a unilateral decision to cite the agency when he was the chairman of the commission. No one except the chairman had access to the commission’s server room at Bidhannagar. Judge Abhijit Gangopadhyay told a woman officer of the commission, “You have to tell more.” The official said in reply, I have no objection to say what I know.
It was further alleged in the court that many OMR sheets were destroyed before the stipulated time on the order of the chairman. The commission can give any answer to the court’s question in that regard. Initially, there were allegations of OMR sheet manipulation in the case of Tet.
Recently, the CBI also recovered many OMR sheets from the house of Ayan Sheel, a close promoter of Hooghly Trinamool youth leader Shantanu Banerjee. It includes answer sheets or OMR sheets of various municipal recruitment exams apart from school recruitment. The CBI officers claim that the official may have been in touch with the private agency NISA regarding school recruitment corruption. Niladri is being brought to Kolkata from Ghaziabad.
