Amidst mounting allegations of manipulated exam results, the BJP government took the matter seriously and initiated a probe into the matter. To investigate the claims of wrongdoing, the government entrusted the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) with the task. As the investigation unfolded, several officials from the Police Recruitment Cell, including its then chief, Additional Director-General of Police Amrit Paul, were arrested. Additionally, a considerable number of candidates who had appeared for the exam were also taken into custody as part of the probe. The situation escalated as the CID sought to uncover the truth behind the alleged malpractices in the recruitment process.

In response to the allegations of irregularities and corruption in the recruitment of 545 Police Sub-Inspectors (PSIs), the government took decisive action by annulling the exam results. As a remedial measure, the government decided to conduct a re-examination, which, however, is yet to take place.
