In the suicide note, Chandran wrote that his UPSC centre was a government school in Paharganj but when he reached there, he realised that his centre was some other school in the same area. Being unaware of the area, since he had shifted from Karnataka to Rajinder Nagar in New Delhi to save time and money, Chandran reached his examination centre about four minutes late.
“Both centres are located in Paharganj but he wasn’t familiar with the area and got down at the wrong one. When he reached there, he was told that there was another centre where his roll number was allotted,” an officer said, adding that had he reached by 9:20, he would have been allowed to write the exam.
The UPSC Prelims 2018 was held on Sunday which was taken by over three lakh aspirants. Candidates who appeared for the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) civil services preliminary examination said that the exam this year was tough as compared to previous year.
