Day 1: Group-II exam peaceful.

The first day of the Group-II services recruitment exam went off peacefully in the Telangana region, and everywhere else in the state, on Saturday.

Barring a few stray incidents at some centres, where some pro-Telangana activists tried to disrupt the exam, the attendance was significantly higher than in the previous years.

The exam was held under the supervision of respective district collectors who made unprecedented security arrangements at the exam centres.

Despite the candidates complaining of transportation problems on account of the APSRTC strike and Rail Roko, the highest attendance of 78.11 per cent was recorded in Nalgonda followed by 77.24 per cent in Mahbubnagar. In Hyder-abad and Ranga Reddy, the attendance was relatively lower at 62.53 per cent.

The overall attendance in the state was 71.14 per cent, which is significantly more than the previous Group-II exams (56.54 per cent in 2005 and 65.71 per cent in 2008). The exam will conclude on Sunday. However, over 76,000 students skipped the exam on Day-1 across the state.

Additional DG S.A. Huda said that the first day of the exam was peaceful across the state barring stray incidents in Warangal where some KUJAC students tried to disrupt the exam.

They were taken into custody.
