The police on Wednesday refuted the allegation of discrimination, spread through social networking sites, in the selection of shortlisted candidates for the post of sub-inspector (SI). “Baseless comments and queries are reportedly circulating among the public through social networking sites about the alleged discrimination to the candidates of Kashmir province which is an intentional move to defame the credibility of the entire recruitment process,” a police spokesman said. The spokesman said the post of sub-inspector was a state cadre post and a common statewide merit was to be drawn for it. A total of 2,181 candidates have been shortlisted for vivo voce and personality assessment test for the post of sub- inspector and of these, 1,525 candidates hail from Jammu province and 656 candidates are from Kashmir province. “The written examination for the post was a competitive examination conducted on an OMR-type answer sheet. The J&K Police has completely switched over to the transparent recruitment process. The current recruitment process is a technologically driven one with minimum human intervention,” the spokesman said. He described the allegations of discrimination as “baseless, fake, concocted and ill-intentioned”. —TNS
