Wannabe policemen threaten to join Maoists in Jharkhand after waiting 4 for their final exam results
Jharkhand: Candidates for the Jharkhand Armed Police (JAP) have threatened to join the Maoist cause after waiting four years for their final exam results.

The affected candidates applied for 1,020 vacancies for constables in nine battalions of Jharkhand Armed Police (JAP) in 2011. They cleared the first two rounds of the recruitment examination, and have now warned the Jharkhand government against playing with their careers. 

The final results are yet to be declared despite a nudge from the Jharkhand High Court. 


After failing to meet Chief Minister Raghubar Das over their issue, the aspirants threatened to adopt the Maoist path. 

The candidates are protesting before the ADG’s office in Ranchi. One of them, Mumtaz Alam said: 

“We have cleared two rounds of the examination conducted by JAP and appeared for the third and final round in 2011, the result of which is still pending. But, for four years, we have been running from pillar to post but to no avail. We see a ray of hope with the new government and so we were trying to meet the CM for the past three days. But, we were not allowed to meet the CM.” 

The youths threatened that they might either burn themselves before the CM’s house or take up guns. 

Another student said: “I am not able to meet the demands of my family with the paltry sum of Rs 3,000 that I earn by working in a shop. 

He added: “My father is a heart patient while my mother is suffering from respiratory ailment. A greater part of my earning goes in buying their medicines. As a result, sometimes we do not have much to eat.” 

An aspirant from Dhanbad said: “I thought that this government job will end the hard times that we are going through. But, delay in publishing the result is gradually fading any hope that I harboured of marrying off my sister.” 

He added: “I have to marry off my younger sister as my father has passed away while my mother is a housewife.” 

When contacted, ADG of JAP Kamal Narayan Choubey said three different screening committees — headed by then JAP commandants Praveen Srivastava, Nirmal Kumar Mishra and Amarjit Balihar — was formed. 

“Death of Balihar in a Maoist ambush has hit work of his committee, which is one of the main reasons for delay in publication of the result,” said Choubey. 

However, he added that verification of the unsigned documents left by Balihar will be completed soon. 

He said: “Now the third committee has come under Jamshedpur SSP A.V. Homkar who has started working on it. He will take some more time to complete the work.” 

Meanwhile, a ruling party MLA said: “It is the reckless performance of the UPA government that is the reason for this mess. Now, we will try our best to publish the result as soon as possible.”
