Tolerate no nonsense from trouble-makers in UPSC exam, cops told

New Delhi: "There should be no scope for the untoward incident like burning of examination papers, tearing of answer sheets by mischievous elements, slogan shouting, protests, intimidation of investigators during Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examination," said a letter written by Delhi Police headquarters (PHQ) to all districts and units alerting them about the security during civil services (preliminary) examination.

Sources told Millennium Post that earlier secretary UPSC wrote to Delhi Police Commissioner regarding the security arrangement during the civil services examination.

"The Union Public Service Commission will be conducting the civil services (preliminary) examination 2019 on Sunday 2nd June 2019. As you aware, comprehensive and foolproof security arrangements are required so that the question paper is not leaked and no unfair or illegal practices are resorted to during the conduct of the examination," UPSC wrote to city police.

Sources said that the letter to police further stated, "We also need to ensure that there is no disruption or agitation near the venues and the candidates are able to reach the venues without any hindrances."

Quoting the letter contents which headquarters wrote to other officers, sources said, "Adequate law & order, security&traffic arrangements may be made at all the examination centres falling under your (districts, units) jurisdiction. Area officers may be directed to personally deploy the staff in such a way that no scope is given for the untoward incident." "The staff deployed at the centres may carry wireless sets for instant communication in case of any problem. It may be ensured that sufficient force is made available to deal with any untoward incident," sources further added quoting the letter content.

DCP (PCR) may ensure that PCR vans are stationed and alerted near the examination centres during examination time. Active patrolling is required to be done around the centres till completion of the examination. DCP (Traffic) headquarters may ensure proper traffic arrangements at all examination centres.

The letter was written by DCP rank officer (headquarters). The copy of the letter was sent to Secretary UPSC and SOs to all Joint CsP/Ranges and traffic for information. In Delhi, there are more than 180 venues where the examination will take place.
