Vijayawada: Andhra Pradesh high court will hear a batch of pleas regarding the physical measurement tests of Sub-Inspector (SI) aspirant candidates on Tuesday. In compliance with the court order, the Andhra Pradesh State Level Police Recruitment Board (APSLPRB) would manually measure the height of aspirants in the premises of the court tomorrow.
The APSLPRB has measured the height of applicants twice with scanners and many of them failed to qualify the test required for the selection of Sub-Inspectors. Subsequently, the failed candidates filed the petitions in the court through their counsel Jada Sravan Kumar. The single judge bench of Ramakrishna Prasad heard the matter and asked the recruitment board to hold off the written test results until the next court order.
The Andhra Pradesh government challenged the single judge order in the high court. The government pleader contended that acting on the court order the APSLPRB manually measured the height of the candidates but many of them failed to clear the test conducted for the selections of police officers. The high court has warned the petitioners of Rs 1 lakh penalty if their allegations against the recruitment board are found to be false.
