Evaluate answer papers written in Malayalam: court

Special Correspondent

Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Wednesday directed the Public Service Commission (PSC) to evaluate answer papers written in Malayalam in the test conducted for the post of Assistant Information Officers and report the results to the court.

Justice S. Siri Jagan also ordered the PSC that further proceeding for preparation of the rank list should be initiated only after informing the court about the results.

The directive came on a writ petition filed by T. Reenamol of Thiruvananthapuram.

According to her, the answer sheets of around 100 candidates who wrote the test in Malayalam had not been evaluated. She contended that the notification inviting the applications for the posts did not mention about the medium of examination. Nor any specific instructions had been given on the question papers about the medium for writing the examination. In fact, the information officers should have the working knowledge of Malayalam as otherwise it would affect their performance.

The petitioner sought a directive to the PSC to evaluate the answer sheets of the petitioner.

‘Love Jihad' case

Justice M. Sasidharan Nambiar disposed of a petition filed by Shahansha and Sirajudheen seeking to quash the criminal cases registered against them in connection with the abduction of two women studying for MBA, in the view of filing a report by the police for closing the cases.

These two men were in the news following allegations that they were part of the ‘Love Jihad' movement. The parents of the women had raised the allegations in a habeas corpus petition seeking production of their daughters.

They alleged that their daughters were lured into marriage and later converted to Islam. The Director General of Police had in an affidavit then stated before the court that there was no movement called ‘Love Jihad' operating in the State.

The women were subsequently produced and allowed to go along with their parents. However, the police had registered criminal cases against the duo. The Public Prosecutor submitted on Wednesday that both the parties wanted to close or settle the cases so that they could lead a peaceful life. As result, the police had filed a petition for closing the criminal cases.

Order released

Justice R. Basant directed the police to release Shajahan of Kollam who was detained in jail under the Kerala Anti-Social Activities (Prevention) Act.

The court ordered that he be released on his executing a bond for Rs.50,000 with two solvent sureties to the like amount to the satisfaction of the magistrate court concerned.

The directive was passed on a petition filed by Abdul Wahab, brother of the detainee.
