Patna: The Railway Ministry has banned the Non-Technical Popular Category (NTPC) and Level 1 examinations of the Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) following protests by students. The ministry has constituted a committee to hear the passed or failed candidates. The committee will hear the objections of the opposing students and after considering them, submit its report to the Railway Ministry. The RRB-NTPC result and group D are witnessing a lot of protest by the youth against the CBT-2 exam.
On Tuesday, protesting students set fire to the engine of a passenger train in Ara. On Tuesday, the railways said that due to the protest, recruitment of candidates and others involved in illegal activities, including vandalism, will be banned in the railways. In fact, alleging that the result and the result of the NTPC exam pattern were rigged, angry students staged a protest at Ara on Tuesday and blocked the railway track. The track was interrupted due to the array.
Subsequently, the Sasaram-Ara passenger was stopped near the outer. But the protesters also reached here and set fire to the engine of the passenger train. The fire then started to burn with smoke and engulfed the entire engine. At Patna's Rajendra Nagar terminal on Monday evening, the police had to use tear gas and lathi charge on the protesters. A complaint has also been lodged against 500 unidentified protesters in connection with the case.
