Uncertainty Looms Over JEE Main After Section 144 Imposed in Rajasthan

Hundreds of aspirants are amid uncertainty over the JEE Main 2022 to be held on June 29 as Rajasthan has imposed section 144 after the beheading of a tailor in broad daylight. Internet services too have been suspended across Rajasthan for 24 hours after the incident and Section 144 has been imposed in the state for a month.

Communal tension has erupted in Rajasthan after two men slit the throat of a tailor in Rajasthan’s Udaipur city over a social media post. The victim had reportedly shared a social media post supporting suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma for her objectionable remark on Prophet Mohammad. Those who killed the tailor also threatened Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying their knife will get him as well.

The last day of the engineering entrance exam JEE Main 2022 was to be held on June 29, however, if the exam will still be conducted is unsure. This has created a lot of panic among students.

Rajasthan is the hub of coaching institutes, however, the majority of students take exams from Kota and Jaipur regions where the law and order situation is under control, said a coaching institute in charge in the area. Thus this might impact fewer students.
