Allahabad: The Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) has cancelled a question in the Provincial Civil Service Preliminary exam held on February 22 and blacklisted the person who had set the paper.

Azamgarh-based Ulema Council had objected to the question, which read: “Which district of undivided UP is being branded as the breeding ground of terrorists?” The options were: (a) Azamgarh, (b) Aligarh, (c) Pithoragarh, (d) Pratapgarh. In a statement on Friday, UPPSC controller of exams Murlidhar Dubey said the commission regretted the inclusion of the question in the general studies paper. Examiners had been asked not to check the question and give marks to candidates out of a maximum of 149, not 150.

Ulema Council convener Amir Rashid Madni had alleged that the question was an attempt to malign Azamgarh district. He had sent letters to the President, Prime Minister, chief secretary of the state Government and others, demanding action against the commission authorities. Madni had threatened to launch an agitation if the commission did not take any action in the matter. He also said he would urge the youths of Azamgarh to boycott the UPPSC exams.

Taliban militants have established secret hideouts in Karachi and it ‘could take the city hostage at any point’, according to the Pakistani police.

The Special Branch of police has highlighted the presence of Taliban in Karachi in a report submitted to the Sindh government and the provincial police chief.

The Taliban have ‘huge caches’ of weapons and ammunition, the report said.

The report provides details about secret Taliban hideouts and their presence in areas like Sohrab Goth and Quaidabad. Besides living in small motels in these areas, the Taliban are hiding in the hills of Manghopir and Orangi town and in other low-income areas and slums, the Daily Times newspaper quoted the police report as saying.

The daily also quoted sources as saying that the deputy chief of the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban, Hasan Mahmood, was hiding in Karachi. The Muttahida Qaumi Movement, which is part of the coalition government in Sindh province, has often warned authorities that the Taliban had established a presence in Karachi.

The Daily Times said the Special Branch report had ‘terrified’ police and security personnel.
