A group of girls, who were rejected from police constable’s exam on height issue, demonstrated during the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s programme held at Lal Parade ground of State capital on Wednesday. Cops whisked away the protesting girls from the programme venue and later they were sent to jail. Preeti Sharma, who is heading the agitation of girls rejected from police constable exam on height ground, told that demonstrating girls were sitting at Shahjehani park from last three to four days but CM had not taken any cognisance of their protest.

She claimed that, at least nine to ten protesting girls went to CM’s programme to meet CM but cops stopped them atthe venue. They were later taken to police station and from there they were taken to jail. “So far police have not released the apprehended girls. Cops are telling to come next day to secure release of arrested girls,” claimed Preeti Sharma. Notably, demonstrating girls are demanding that height of girls in police constable exams should be reduced to 155 cm from the present 158 cm. They are telling that CM had promised in October month of last year that girls will get concession in height in police constable exam but so far, this promise has been not fulfilled. “We have passed the written and physical exam but have been rejected on height issue,” said Preeti Sharma.
