BOARD examinations in 11 schools located in the violence-hit areas started amidst tight security here on Monday. As the examination restarted as per schedule, students taking the exams in these areas heaved a sigh of relief.

As part of the security measures, the RAF and PCA jawans were deployed outside the Aminabad Inter College. District Magistrate RN Tripathi and Commissioner RKMittal separately visited several colleges.

The centre in-charge of the Mahila College said that about 400 examinees were scheduled to take the examination. When she found that about 20 of them had not turned up, she immediately contacted them and asked them to sit for the examination. Out of 20, eight reached the examination centre. Although they came late, they were allowed to take the examination.

The district magistrate then visited the Vidyant Hindu College, the Boys Anglo Inter College for inspection and the Industrial College at Bans Mandi.

The commissioner visited four colleges, including the Aminabad Inter College.

Although the students were happy about their exams restarting, they demanded a fresh date for the paper that was cancelled following the violence.
