6 candidates faint in examination hall
PATNA: Six candidates appearing in the examination of department of electronics and accreditation of computer courses (DOEACC) at Adharshila complex near RBI office, Gandhi Maidan, fainted in quick succession in the examination hall.
“We first thought that the pressure of the examination was the reason behind the incident. But we later smelled LPG gas inside the hall. That could be the reason they became unconscious,” said an examinee.
