Staff Selection Commission (SSC) conducted the online examination for the Recruitment of Constables in Delhi Police today and just under 1 lakh aspirants appeared in the exam held across the Country. However, soon a video was posted on the video-sharing platform YouTube, claiming the leakage of question paper at one exam center in Delhi. SSC has put up a notice on its official website confronting the claim of a paper leak.
In the notice, SSC said some miscreants have posted an old ABP News Item of the year 2012 on YouTube stating that there has been a leakage of the question paper. The video refers to a venue in Sector-1 Rohini, New Delhi which is not a venue for Delhi Police Constable exam, SSC has clarified. The Commission further said, “The news item is totally baseless and misleading and the Delhi Police Exam 2016 is being conducted by SSC seamlessly throughout the Country.” Read the notice here.
