Candidates taking the Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC) preliminary test (PT) created uproarious scenes before the start of the examination in Patna over delay in distribution of question papers.
Police said six persons had been detained for allegedly creating ruckus at DBRK Jalan High School, Hajiganj in Chowk police station area of Patna City.
The examination was conducted by the BPSC to appoint 642 government officers in Bihar.
The trouble started as the question papers were distributed to the examinees at 12.25 pm, 25 minutes after the scheduled time, a police officer said.
The students protested the delay and alleged that the papers were not distributed on time due to rumours of question leak.
Finding the situation going out of control, a police team, along with executive magistrate, detained six examinees.
Chowk police station SHO AK Pandey said, “Police will lodge a case after interrogating them. The situation was brought under control after the police assured examinees that they would be allowed to extra time write papers.”
