Aspirants protesting against the alleged irregularities in Railway Recruitment Board’s exam allegedly set a bogie of the Bhabua-Patna Intercity Express on fire on Wednesday in Bihar’s Gaya, said the police.

The police had to release several rounds of tear gas to stop the miscreants, added the police.

“Situation under control now. They have set it (coach/train) on fire, we have identified some of them,” said Gaya Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Aditya Kumar.

“We want to tell the aspirants that they should not get influenced by anyone, and not damage government property. A committee has been formed by the government to look into the matter,” the SSP added.

“CBT 2 exam date was not notified; no update on Railway exam which was notified in 2019…The result is still awaited…We demand cancellation of the CBT 2 exam and release of the exam result,” said a protestor.
