SSC CGL 2017 Tier II exam: The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) which is conducting Combined Graduate Level Examination (Tier-II), 2017 has cancelled examination of Shift-II held at Animate Infotech, Mohan Cooperative Industrial Estate, New Delhi on Saturday due to report of cheating and unruly behaviour of candidates.
According to SSC, it received information at 1.45 pm on February 17, 2018 that at Animate Infotech, Mohan Cooperative Industrial Estate, New Delhi, that some candidates, after the completion of Paper-I (Quantitative Aptitude) had raised a noise that a chit of paper was found with some answers scribbled on it in the toilet.
SSC said, when the representative of the Commission moved in to ascertain the correct facts in the matter, his entry into the toilet was obstructed by some candidates who instead manhandled and beat him up and snatched his mobile.
In an online notification central government recruitment body said that the Commission immediately swung into action and established contact with the Police to ascertain the facts of the case. “Prima-facie evidence clearly indicates that the entire episode was created by some unruly elements, with a malafide intention, to try to disrupt the examination,” said SSC.
Taking action on the unruly behaviour, SSC said that the examination of Shift-II of that venue had been cancelled and it would not conduct any re-examination for that batch. The Commission said that based on video footage of the incident, stringent action will be taken against those candidates who were actively involved in disrupting the examination.
