Prima-facie evidence clearly indicates that the entire episode was created by some unruly elements, with a malafide intention, to try to disrupt the examination. In the meantime, based on video footage of the incident available with the Commission, stringent action will be taken against those candidates who were actively involved in disrupting the said examination," told the Controller of Examinations, SSC.
