CBI has registered a preliminary enquiry into alleged irregularities in the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) examination held on 21st of last month.
Sources said, the agency had examined the reference received from the Centre for a CBI enquiry into the matter. A decision was taken to initiate a preliminary enquiry in the matter after examining the allegations.
A preliminary enquiry is the first step of a probe by the CBI where the agency assesses whether the allegations have enough prima facie material for registering an FIR. The SSC, which conducts examination for subordinate services, had recommended a CBI inquiry into the matter.
