The Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE) has urged the State Government to impose Section 144 in the area surrounding examination centres, where Class X and XII examinations will be held from 15 February.

Ms.Karwal has said “Imposition of Section 144 in the area surrounding examination centers, if deemed necessary” may be clamped.
