Hyderabad: The PIL bench of the High Court at Hyderabad comprising Acting Chief Justice Dilip B Bhosale and Justice P Naveen Rao on Thursday adjourned to April a petition seeking steps to curb mass copying in the twin states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh public examinations and other examinations.

The bench was dealing with a petition filed by Dr Srinivas Guntupalli of Eluru city in Andhra Pradesh. The bench had directed the twin governments to consider the installation of CCTV cameras in all examination centres. When the case came up for hearing, the counsel for Andhra Pradesh informed the bench that cameras were already installed in each examination centre and were connected to the office of the District Education Officer at each district.

The counsel said that installation of cameras in strong rooms was in progress and 150 flying squads were also deployed to make surprise visits to prevent mass copying. The counsel for the Telangana government submitted to the court that installation of the cameras would be completed by Monday and similar steps taken by the AP government would be taken by the Telangana State government.

The counsel for the petitioner requested the court to adjourn the hearing on the petition to April, so that there would be time to review the arrangements made by both the governments. The bench accordingly adjourned the petition to April.
