Facing allegations of large scale irregularities in recruitment of 35 wireless operators, the UT police have now moved an application seeking vacation of stay on compiling results accusing applicants of "misleading"the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT).

During the resumed hearing of the application challenging the recruitment process, the UT police on Wednesday pressed for vacation of stay saying, "The stay order has been obtained by misleading the tribunal by stating wrong facts, and not disclosing the correct position."

The UT police said, "Appointment of constables (wireless operators) is very sensitive issue, as it goes to the very root of policing and enables the conduct of smooth operations against anti-social elements."

Explaining their side for change in timings, the UT police submitted that due intimation was given to all applicants regarding change in timing of exam through letters and SMS. The case would now be heard on Thursday.

CAT on March 17 had stayed the declaration of the interview regarding recruitment of the 35 wireless operators by the UT police.

Accusing the large scale copying in the written exam, six applicants had moved the tribunal alleging few candidates were being helped during the examination, while some candidates were already aware of the question paper. These applicants had sought direction to scrap the recruitment process.

The UT police had advertised 35 posts of constables (wireless operators) for which the test was held on March 1 and the interview of the selected candidates were held on March 17 and 18.
