Jammu, Dec 8 (PTI) The Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Thursday directed the Lieutenant Governor administration to probe the alleged “brazen irregularities and illegalities” by the Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Board (JKSSRB) in the conduct of various recruitment examinations.

The court also cancelled the examinations to be conducted by the board for the posts of junior engineer and sub-inspector of police.

The CBI had in November filed a charge sheet against 24 people, including a former BSF commandant, for allegedly leaking the question paper of the police sub-inspector recruitment examination conducted by the JKSSRB, according to officials.
