Civil Services aspirants, who have been on a 52-day relay hunger strike to protest against alleged anomalies in the preliminary test conducted in 2010 for the Union Public Service Commission examination, took out a march near the North Campus of Delhi University on Sunday.

The protesters claimed that they were removed by police from Jantar Mantar on Friday night. Two of the protesters are on an indefinite hunger strike.

The protesters are demanding a review of the preliminary tests results and extension of the main test.

They alleged that over 4,000 deserving candidates were denied a chance to take the mains following a human or technical error that ended up restricting the number of qualified candidates to just 12,400 despite there being 965 notified vacancies.

In 2009, they said 12,800 students qualified for the mains though there were just 585 vacancies.
