JPSC Prelims Paperleak: Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) on Monday denied that the Jharkhand Combined Civil Services Preliminary Competitive Examination paper was leaked. Said that the allegations made in the so-called video were found to be false in the investigation. JPSC President Dr. Mary Neelima Kerketta has written a letter to the Chief Secretary, Home Secretary and DGP to identify the culprits in the entire matter and take strict action against them.

JPSC Secretary Akshay Kumar Singh said that investigation reports have come from all the districts. The authenticity of the paper leak and viral video was not found to be true. He said that a letter has been written to the Chief Secretary, Home Secretary and DGP for strict action against those spreading misleading propaganda.

A request has been made to take action under the Jharkhand Competitive Examination (Measures for Prevention and Redressal of Unfair Means in Recruitment) Act, 2023. JPSC President Dr. Mary Neelima Kerketta has written in a letter sent to the Chief Secretary that on March 17, the preliminary examination of JPSC Civil Services was conducted at 834 examination centers in all 24 districts of the state in two shifts. The Commission did not receive information about any unusual and untoward incident from the examination centres. Factual videos from two-three examination centers were circulated in some electronic and social media. After the examination, it is clear from the joint report of the Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police of all the districts, especially the districts where misinformation was being spread on social media, that the videos that were being run on electronic and social media were completely wrong, misleading and were beyond the facts. It has been made clear in the report that the district administration has started the work of identifying the anti-social elements involved, so that such acts can be curbed.

Attempt to tarnish the image of the Commission and break the morale of students

JPSC Chairperson Dr Mary Neelima Kerketta wrote that there were deliberate attempts by anti-social elements to tarnish the image of the Commission, break the morale of examinees and create propaganda with fake videos and unverified misleading evidence to hamper the efforts of the government. This can also be called a conspiracy to tarnish the image of the government. This is a punishable offense under the provisions of the Jharkhand Competitive Examination Act.

JPSC recommended to the government

JPSC has recommended to the government that special instructions should be given to the district administration to identify the individuals and groups of individuals involved in broadcasting, promoting and spreading such fake videos and give them the strictest punishment under the provisions of the said Act. So that this does not happen again in the future and no one dares to indulge in this type of misdeed. Also, the anti-social elements who are trying to tarnish the image of the Commission and the Government without any reason and playing with the future of lakhs of loyal students can be curbed.

FIR filed against those who created ruckus over paper leak

Two FIRs have been lodged in Mihizam police station in connection with boycotting JPSC examination and creating disturbance. 20 candidates have been named in an FIR. Whereas, in the second FIR, Bineet Kumar and 50 unknown persons have been made accused.

It is known that during JPSC PT on Sunday, the candidates had boycotted the examination and created ruckus by accusing the Tribal Evening Degree College and Inter College Mihijam Center of paper leak. On Monday, DSP level officer of Special Branch reached both the centers and took information about the matter. A case has been registered at Mihizam police station on the application of Magistrate Ajaz Hussain Ansari posted at the examination center of Tribal Sandhya Degree College.
