K Manikandan, an undergraduate and resident of Virudhunagar district, stated in his petition that he had cleared the written examination for the post of grade II constable, grade II jail warden/ firemen by securing 56 marks and subsequently become eligible to attend the first stage of physical test. He attended the physical test which includes height, weight and chest measurement at a stadium on the Ramanathapuram district collectorate campus on November 6. Ad After completing the 1,500 metres running, he said he fell down and sustained fracture in his left leg. He stated that he was admitted to the Ramanathapuram government hospital for treatment. Due to this he was unable to attend the second stage of physical test which includes rope climbing, long jump and 400 metres running. He submitted a representation to the authorities explaining that he would not be able to attend the second stage on November 9. Saying that joining the police force was his childhood ambition, he prayed that an alternate date be allowed for him to attend the second stage of physical test. Ad Since the representation was not considered, the petitioner moved the high court Madurai bench which heard his petition on Friday. Justice M S Ramesh observed that since the petitioner had cleared the first stage of physical test and was unable to attend the second stage as he claims to have sustained fracture injuries, a sympathetic view can be taken in this regard. Hence the judge directed the petitioner to submit his medical records to the secretary of TNUSRB and it was open to them to take a decision on permitting him to participate in the second stage of physical test.
