HC directs PSC chairman to constitute committee on questions
Vet Assistant Surgeons Test
D A RASHID
Srinagar, July 15: The High Court has directed the Chairman Public Service Commission to constitute a committee to look into the veracity of the key of eight questions of question-booklet of the Veterinary Assistant Surgeons test 2012.
The court has also asked the PSC to conduct the interview of the petitioners if it is still going on and keep their result in a sealed cover.
A bench of Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar passed the direction on a petition filed by some candidates seeking directions for their selection and appointment in keeping with the contention that the PSC has set a wrong Key to eight questions in the screening test of the Veterinary Surgeons.
Counsel of the petitioners, Mir Manzoor contended before the court that a wrong Key disturbs the whole selection process as some candidates can get the benefit of the marks which are awarded to them on the basis of wrong Key while others who mark the correct options are deprived of the marks.
“Due to wrong Key, the petitioners have been excluded from the selection process” he argued.
Counsel referred to various standard textbooks to show that the petitioners were excluded from the selection process as their OMR sheets were evaluated on the basis of a wrong Key.
“The petitioners have the right to be selected and appointed against the posts of veterinary surgeons as guaranteed by Article 16 of the constitution” counsel pleaded.
The Court held that in keeping with the grounds stated, the rights of the petitioners required to be protected.
