BPSC PT: 13,000 candidates could not get admit cards
Patna,(BiharTimes): About 13,000 BPSC candidates could not receive admit card and thus could not appear in the preliminary test held in 390 centres all over the state on Sunday. This includes 35 candidates, whom the Patna high court had on Thursday last allowed to appear though they had not received the admit card.
About 2.50 lakh aspirants appeared in the preliminary test.
However, the Commission had stated that admit cards were not issued to candidates who had not filled their application forms correctly.
Though the BPSC claims that no untoward incident took place anywhere in the state, some candidates protested at D B R K Jalan High School, Patna City, against delay in distribution of question papers.
Reports said that the students were also angry after they allegedly found seals of some of the envelopes––in which question papers were brought––open prior to distribution. The students claimed that the paper has been leaked.
However, the officials denied the allegation.
Chowk police station officers reached the spot to pacify the agitating candidates.
There were reports of protests at various centres over admit cards.
Several candidates staged a demonstration in front of the BPSC office on Saturday too for not having received admit cards.
According to Prabhat Kumar Sinha, the secretary of BPSC, there were some reports of students creating disturbances at Jalan High School. Barring this incident, there were no reports of any untoward incidents or no reports of question paper leak.
