Bhubaneswar: Taking a strict note on disturbances caused by a couple of mischief mongers who had come to participate in the army recruitment drive, Police Commissioner Sudhansu Sarangi today requested the State Government to restrict such mass job camps in the Capital City.

Sarangi also spoke to 120 Batallion (Territorial Army) authorities and urged them to hold such recruitment drives in in rural areas or on the outskirts,  but not within boundaries of Bhubaneswar.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Wednesday, the Police Commissioner said that the number of aspirants for a few posts was high. "The area around 12 battalion is sensitive from security point of view and prohibitory orders have been clamped there. We have spoken to the 120 battnallion not to hold recruitment within the capital city limits."

The Police Commissioner further added, there are unscruplous elements among the aspirants who resort to anti-social activities after failing in the exams. Three were arrested for eve-teasing while many were involved in a ruckus at Bhubaneswar railway station.

To prevent these untoward incidents the Twin City police have taken this matter seriously and moved the Government and Territorial Army.
