Hundreds of Staff Selection Commission (SSC) aspirants created a ruckus outside Cambrian Public School on Sunday after being denied entry to the examination centre for allegedly not carrying their original identity proofs and reaching the centre late.
The candidates blocked traffic on the busy Kanke Road, hardly 1 km from chief minister Raghubar Das’s Ranchi residence. Policemen from Gonda Police Station rushed to the spot to control the situation.
“Many of the students did not read the instructions and were unaware about the reporting time. The road was jammed for a while but we got it cleared. The situation was under control by 12.30 pm,” Officer in-charge of Gonda Police Station, Anil Kumar Dwivedi said .
Some of the candidates alleged that they were not allowed to write the exams despite reaching the centre on time. They also alleged that a photocopy of any identity proof is sufficient for writing the exams but the officials at this Ranchi school demanded original documents instead.
While no school official was ready to talk to the media, sources from the examination centre said that at least 18 students were not allowed to write the examinations. All 18 did not carry their original identity proof.
As per the instructions mentioned in the admit card, all the aspirants had to reach the examination centre by 9.30 am. However, many students reached the centre after 10.30 am and demanded entry, said sources.
