Three advocates of the Allahabad High Court have filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) on Friday,seeking an inquiry over the paper setting of the preliminary examination of Public Service Commission,2008. The court has fixed March 27 as the date for hearing the case. 

Arguing on behalf of petitioners J A Azmi,K K Roy and K P Pathak,senior advocate SMA Kazmi argued that in the objective type question paper,question number116 was extremely bewildering. The candidates were asked: Which of the four cities in undivided Uttar Pradesh is being branded as breeding ground for terrorism? The correct answer was Azamgarh.

Kazmi contended that this question was against the historical facts and the glorious past of Azamgarh and was factually incorrect. Plus,question number 121 has been framed declaring Hari Prasad Chaurasia,the flute maestro,as dead. Kazmi said this reflected the casualness of the paper setters for such prestigious exam.

Arguing on behalf of the Chairman of Public Service Commission,PS Baghel said the setting up of an inquiry and publication of regret in the newspaper has already been done by the Commission. Hence,the petition does not stand.
