SSC paper leak protest: Gate of JLN Stadium Metro station opened

New Delhi: In some relief to commuters, Delhi Metro today opened one of the gates of the JLN Stadium station for public after two days of closure in view of a protest by job aspirants at the CGO Complex nearby, officials said.

The demonstration is against the alleged paper leak in one of tests held by the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) on February 21.
"The JLN Stadium station is now open for public, but entry and exit is allowed only from the main gate, i.e., Gate No. 4. Rest of the gates would remain shut till further directions," a senior DMRC official said.
The station falls on the Delhi Metro network's busy Violet Line that connects Kashmere Gate to Escorts Mujesar.
It was closed around 9 am on Saturday on the advice of Delhi Police.
Students from across India have gathered outside the CGO Complex, where the SSC is headquartered, demanding a CBI inquiry into the allegations of leak of questions of the Combined Graduate Level (Tier-II) Examination 2017 held from February 17 to 22.
In a statement, SSC chairman Ashim Khurana yesterday said, "The commission agreed recommending to the Department of Personnel and Training to request the government to conduct a CBI enquiry into the allegations of leak of questions of Paper-I on February 21, and other related issues."
Social activist Anna Hazare yesterday met the students protesting outside the Commission's office, and supported their demand for a CBI probe.
