“Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP) constable K.R. Manjunath is appearing for the SSLC board exams as an external candidate at the Government Girls’ Junior College at Kolar, which is an enrollment centre,” district nodal officer Nagendra Prasad instructed IANS on cellphone.
Kolar is about 100km east of Bengaluru within the southern state. The SSLC board exams are being held throughout the state since June 25 as per the lockdown pointers, which makes carrying masks, washing fingers with sanitiser and sustaining social distancing necessary.
Manjunath appeared for the sixth and final examination in third language on Friday after finishing papers in 5 topics to date.
“Manjunath is making an attempt to cross in all 6 topics for the second time, as he failed in 2 topics within the first try four years in the past. He will get promotion and grow to be head constable if he passes this time,’ stated Prasad.
Though Manjunath studied as much as class 7 within the city over four a long time in the past, he secured a job within the state police division in D group and was promoted as a constable over a decade in the past on service file.
“As Manjunath wants to retire as head constable, he has to pass the class 10 exam, which is a minimum for the promotion. He is confident of passing in all subjects this time as he claims to have done well,” stated Prasad.
The constable has opted to put in writing the examination in his dwelling city (Kolar) although he’s posted in Bengaluru.
“On learning that a senior policeman was writing the class 10 board exam, state Education Minister S. Suresh Kumar enquired about him during his official visit to Kolar on June 29,” Prasad recalled.
