Pakistani citizens allegedly enlisted in Indian Army through fake documents, High Court takes serious note

Massive recruitment racket exposing infiltration in Indian Army and CRPF unearthed

Kolkata – A shocking revelation has emerged regarding a racket involved in recruiting individuals into the Indian Army and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) using fraudulent documents. Disturbingly, the racket has been facilitating the entry of Pakistani citizens into the Indian Army as well. The matter has been brought to the attention of the Calcutta High Court through a petition, which highlights two Pakistani nationals who have allegedly become soldiers in the Indian Army. The petitioner has also accused one of his relatives of being involved in this illicit operation. Taking the matter seriously, Justice Rajasekhar Mantha, judge of the single bench at the Calcutta High Court, has commenced the hearing.

Upon acknowledging the gravity of the situation, the High Court has issued notices to various departments, including the West Bengal government, demanding their response. Additionally, the High Court has instructed the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to conduct an investigation into the matter.

Bishnu Chaudhary, a resident of Hooghly district, filed the petition with the High Court, asserting that corruption has spread within the army. The recruitment racket, utilizing fake documents, is enabling the entry of anti-national elements into the Indian Army by facilitating their success in the SSC GD Exam. Bishnu claims that two Pakistani nationals, Jaikant Kumar and Pradyuman Kumar, are currently stationed at the Barrackpore Defense Cantonment in North 24 Parganas district. Furthermore, Bishnu alleges that his close relative, Mahesh Chowdhary, and his friend, Raju Gupta, are involved in the racket responsible for recruiting these individuals. Bishnu has provided detailed information regarding the entire operation. The gang is so active that it has managed to influence the recruitment exam, ensuring the selection of their preferred candidates.

In his plea, Bishnu also expressed concerns about his personal safety, stating that he has filed complaints in multiple locations. As a result, he believes there have been attempts on his life. The recruitment racket involved in forging documents is also implicated in providing fake residence certificates, character certificates, and Other Backward Class (OBC) certificates, with the involvement of District Magistrates (DM), Sub-Divisional Magistrates (SDM), Municipality Chairmen, and Police Officers.

The High Court, considering the allegations made in the petition to be extremely serious, has deemed an inquiry imperative. Justice Rajasekhar has even acknowledged the possibility of the Pakistani intelligence agency, ISI, being involved in this illicit operation. In response, the High Court has issued notices to the Government of West Bengal, Director General of Police (DGP) of West Bengal Police, Superintendent of Police of Hooghly District, Regional Director of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), and the Incharge of Mogra Police Station. Additionally, they have sought a detailed report on the actions taken thus far in response to this matter.

The revelations of this recruitment racket have sent shockwaves through the Indian Army and CRPF. The need for a thorough investigation and swift action is evident to ensure the security and integrity of the armed forces. The involvement of Pakistani nationals further raises concerns regarding national security and the need for robust screening processes to prevent infiltration and compromise of defense establishments.
