The result declaration for the post of Junior Engineer by Bihar Staff Selection Commission (BSSC) has been halted for few days by the High Court in Patna. BSSC Junior Engineer results 2016 was to be announced on December as its examination was conducted on September 25, 2016.
The written examination for the main paper for the post of Junior Engineer in Water Resource Department was conducted so as to fill in 2,030 posts in the State of Bihar. The announcement made by the Patna High Court on Friday gave thousands of candidates a nerve-wrecking experience for the next few days as the results have been put on hold.
The decision was made in wake of alarm when one of the candidates along with others filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) by Rajiv Ranjan Kumar after he found and reported a series of irregularities during the commence of the written exam. The main colleges or centres where such unusual scenario came in light was SB College, Maulabhagh, Arrah when during the first shift exam the candidates were provided with second shift paper to which the students or candidates retaliated immediately.
After much hue and cry in the college Police interference made the situation under control along with calling up Patrolling Magistrate who took the matter in hand and filed a complaint against 10 people (invigilators) including Center Supritendent in Nawada Thana followed by an FIR.
Moreover, this is not the first time that irregularities have been noticed during Bihar Staff Selection Commission exam as earlier such absurd situation were conducted and later on the results were announced and published in the same manner. With the current BSSC Junior Engineer results 2016 being halted by Patna High Court, candidates awaiting the result have to wait till the next order.
