Deploy women cops for Dec 8 exam: PGI to UT
To ensure that this time no female candidate is left without being frisked at the examination centre, in the absence of adequate female security staff, PGI authorities have also requested the UT Police to depute female constables at all the 10 examination centres.
While the chief of security staff at PGI was unavailable for comments, a senior security officer confirmed the development and said that the letter to deploy female security staff on December 8 was sent to the UT police on Sunday.
Sources in the PGI said that the tertiary care institute had less than a dozen female security personnel in its fleet. On November 10, in the absence of any female security staff at the centres, none of the female candidates were frisked. Later, when the CBI sleuths raided the centres, seven female candidates were found to be dummy candidates, who were used to transmit the questions outside and were wearing special clothes with gadgets stitched inside their clothes.
Ironically, even though the instructions for the examination held on November 10 read that there would be frisking at the centres by the security staff or police personnel, only at few centres frisking was done and that too only for male candidates.
