It may be noted that charges were earlier framed against a total of 67 people in connection with the infamous APSC scam that rocked Assam.

Of them, 60 were candidates who appeared for the exam, while the remaining seven were APSC members and staff.

The court had also declared two other accused, Sudeep Das and Rajib Pal as absconding from justice.

Rajib Pal is the brother of Rakesh Pal, while Sudeep Das was the personal assistant of Rakesh Pal.

Notably, two of the accused in the case were acquitted due to a lack of evidence.
