In a strange incident, some students snatched examination material including question papers and answer sheets from a test centre in Government Higher Secondary School (GHSS) Khawas here after which school staff refused to supervise the exam of remaining papers, fearing reprisal from locals.

As per reports, some boys from Khawas village of Kotranka sub division here went to GHSS Khawas yesterday to collect their examination roll number slips but had verbal duel with school staff as roll number slips of some of the boys were missing.

The incident took place while examination of private candidates of HS Part II (summer zone) was going on in the school. However, the situation took a nasty turn after the students suddenly snatched the examination material including examination papers, examination answer sheets and pens from the exam centre and fled away. Soon after the incident, school authorities informed police and teams from Police Posts Khawas and Budhal rushed to the spot.

As per the complaint, at about 11:05 am, the students, including Ajay Singh son of Angraiz Singh, Narinder Singh son of Dalip Singh, Rahul son of Madan Lal, Deep Singh son of Suraj Ram, Muhammad Rafiq son of Manzoor Husain and Surjeet Sharma came to GHSS Khawas and discussed issues of their roll number slips. In the meantime, they snatched one menu, 24 question papers of mathematics, two pen sets, two answer sheets and one continuation sheet and ran away from the spot and are yet to be traced. 

Police registered a case u/s 382, 147 RPC in Police Station Budhal and are investigating the matter. 

Joint Secretary BOSE, Veena Pandita said the Board has taken the matter with District Magistarte and SSP of Rajouri.  She added that whenever the snatched exam material is recovered, the decision about giving any relaxation to the affected students will be taken.
 

"We are working on the matter and if police will provide adequate security arrangement then remaining papers will be conducted in the same centre. But the staff is unwilling to supervise the exam in the said school and we are mulling over shifting the centre," CEO Rajouri, Abdul Hamid Fani said.
