Candidates turn violent, Police use force
FAKE RECRUITMENT CALL
Jammu, July 28: Trouble erupted outside the Border Security Force (BSF) Headquarter at Paloura here on Thursday when large number of youth, assembled for a recruitment rally, turned violent.
Police resorted to baton charge to disperse nearly 2000 youth leaving several of them injured. The protest erupted when the youth assembled for physical test found that the no recruitment notice was issued by the BSF.
The angry youth resorted to protest and some of them even smashed window screens of vehicles on busy Jammu-Poonch Highway.
Eyewitnesses said that the youth on finding the gate of the BSF headquarter locked, demanded to meet the senior officials to clear their doubts. As no one came to hear them, they turned towards the highway and blocked the vehicular movement. Some of them turned violent and started pelting stones on the vehicles.
It was learnt that the youth had come from R.S Pura, Akhnoor, Bishnah, Satwari and Palhawala where some shopkeepers had sold Xerox copies of recruitment forms calling for physical test for the posts of constable in BSF today.
When contacted SDPO Domana Diwakar Singh said that so far the investigation shows that most the youth had been duped by some persons as no advertisement was issued by the BSF.
