UP Police Constable Recruitment Exam Cancelled Amidst Rigging Allegations


The Uttar Pradesh government has cancelled the police constable recruitment exams held earlier this month, following widespread allegations of rigging. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced the decision on social media, stating that “there can be no compromise with the sanctity of examinations” and that “strictest action” will be taken against those involved.

The cancellation comes after reports that the question paper was leaked and over 100 touts were arrested by police. Students had been protesting on the streets in Lucknow and Prayagraj, demanding a re-examination.

An FIR has been registered in Lucknow over the alleged paper leak, and an internal inquiry committee has been formed to investigate the claims. The government has also instructed the Police Recruitment Board to ensure advance legal action against any level of negligence.

The cancellation of the exams is a major setback for the over 48 lakh youths who had appeared for the written tests. However, many have welcomed the decision, saying it is a necessary step to ensure fair and transparent recruitment.

The government has said that the re-examination will be held within the next six months. In the meantime, the STF will investigate the case and strict action will be taken against those found guilty.
