More skeletons tumble out of SI recruitment controversy
Open question paper, no biometric attendance, extra sitting arrangements make process murkier

Jammu, Jan 20: More skeletons have started tumbling out of the controversial recruitment process of Sub-Inspectors in Jammu and Kashmir Police as applicants have pointed out to many other serious flaws in the conduct of written examination.
Pertinently, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court has already stayed the process directing JKP not to distribute joining letters to the recruited sub-inspectors, in view of litigation filed by aspirants.
Making startling revelations in the recruitment process, applications informed that in the Hall Number 6 established at Parade College Jammu for conduct of written test of Sub-Inspector, the question paper was not sealed and the person distributing the question paper had question papers in his hand before the start of exam.
"When we applications had questioned the invigilating staff about the broken sealed of the packet, the staff had given an excuse that the question paper was opened in front of CCTV and they can check that", an applicant informed.
The applicants further said that when they asked for CCTV footage of the examination centre through an RTI application, the Police Recruitment Board didn't provide any such CCTV footage, raising more suspicion.
An applicant said that he had asked the Police Recruitment Board through an RTI application about the cut-off merit of written test. "The reply only mentioned about the marks of the candidates but not the cut-off merit in any category", the applicant said.
The applicants further said that in the examination centre, the applicants had to mark their biometric attendance. "But due to some unknown reasons, in various examination centres including Jammu as well as Chann Arorian of district Kathua, biometric attendance was not taken", another applicant said, adding that the invigilating staff had taken biometric attendance very casually and allowed the applicants without any such attendance, on the plea that it was just wasting time.
Moreover, applicants also said that all the invigilating staff at the written examination was from Police department and there was no third party monitoring. "In absence of third-party monitoring, it was very easy to manipulate the written examination", the applicant said.
The Police Recruitment Board had made 781 extra sitting arrangements for written test, which was already pointed out by Early Times in its edition of June 15, 2018 in a news report titled, "SI selection caught in controversy", 781 extra sitting arrangements for written test create doubt among aspirants".
In view of the all new revelations about the written-test, the doubts of the applicants have been gaining more weight and the administration must take cognizance of all the facts.
