Aspirants who had applied three years ago for Jammu and Kashmir Police Border Battalion were detained by police on Tuesday. More than 50 job aspirants were detained by police as the aspirants of the border battalion came out for strong protest in support of their demand on the Tawi bridge.

The agitating youth including young girls had gathered at the exhibition ground and then took out a protest rally to Dogra Chowk before blocking Tawi Bridge for over two hours which caused a massive traffic jam.

A young woman said that they have qualified physical test three years ago for the border battalion and since then, the written exams have not been conducted.

After agitating youth refused to lift the blockade, additional reinforcements were rushed to the bridge and cops resorted to a mild batoncharge before detaining over 50 protesters.

The protesters also were agitated over the recent re-advertisement of the posts by the police recruitment board and demanded its withdrawal, reportedly.

Earlier on January 27, the border battalion aspirants had submitted a memorandum to the divisional commissioner, Jammu, Raghav Langer and  him that they had applied for the post of head constable advertised by J-K Police recruitment Board in 2019 and appeared in physical and medical tests
