HYDERABAD: A division bench of the High Court comprising justice V Eswaraiah and justice KG Shankar on Friday directed the AP Public Service Commission not to declare, the final results of interviews held for selection of candidates for Group-II services.

While refusing to stay the interviews which are going on since March 3, the bench made it clear that interviews may go on but final results should not be declared.

The bench was dealing with a plea by N Kylasa Rao of Khammam and eight others who were aggrieved by the action of AP Administrative Tribunal in not granting interim stay on interviews for Group-II posts.

The petitioners had approached the tribunal challenging valuation of scripts in which answers were altered by using a whitener.

Since the tribunal did not grant them interim relief, they approached the Court.

Government's counsel Sivaraju Srinivas said there was no provision that barred change of answers once marked when the Group II examinations were held in 2011. Subsequently, the APPSC has come out with new guidelines prohibiting use of a whitener to erase erroneous answers and mark answers afresh. He said the results of written exams had already been declared and interviews were going on.

The bench directed APPSC to submit a report with two lists of candidates.
