Patna: Candidates for the police jobs in Bihar on Tuesday took out a peaceful rally in front of the Janata Dal – U headquarters on Birchand Patel Marg in Patna to press for implementation of their demands.

Demanding full probe in the police recruitment exam in 2009, the protestors said that 775 candidates who had successfully cleared the written test and had also passed the rigorous physical tests were denied appointments for no valid reason.

"We demand an investigation into the irregularities and proper action against the erring officials. All 775 candidates who had passed the tests must be given appointment letters immediately or else we will be forced to intensify our stir," said one protestor.

At the time of the protest, senior JD-U leaders RCP Singh and Shyam Rajak were inside the building.

When Rajak came out of the office, he was ambushed by the protestors. Only after he assured them of taking up their cause with the proper authorities, he was allowed to leave.
