Indore (Madhya Pradesh): An FIR has been registered by Sanyogitaganj police station against unknown person for spreading false news regarding postponement of State Service Examination-2020.
The FIR has been registered on the complaint of the exam controller of Madhya Pradesh Public Service Commission who alleged that the mischievous act was aimed at tarnishing the image of MPPSC.
The case has been registered under Section 188.
In his complaint, the exam controller said that the State Service Examination-2020 was initially planned on April 11 which was extended to June 20 following Covid-19 cases.
On Saturday, a public notice claiming that MPPSC has postponed State Service Examination-2020 scheduled on June 20, went viral on social media.
