CHANDIGARH: In a huge embarrassment for the judiciary, the Punjab and Haryana high court administration has recommended that an FIR be registered against its own registrar who was handling recruitment.
The court put a harsh spotlight on its own inner functioning after the question paper of a preliminary exam for the recruitment of judicial officers in the Haryana Civil Services (judicial branch) was allegedly leaked. The high court has also ordered an FIR against two women candidates who were allegedly involved in leaking the paper.
The high court has scrapped the exam held on July 16, 2017 for the selection of 109 subordinate judges in the Haryana judiciary. The decision was taken by the recruitment/promotion/court creation committee (subordinate judicial services) of the court.
