July 2018 of the respondent No.3/Staff Selection Commission
inviting online applications to participate in the examination for the
recruitment of Constables (General Duty) in the Central Armed
Police Forces (CAPFs), NIA & SSF and Rifleman (GD) in Assam
Rifles (AR). He successfully cleared the written exam on 14th
February 2019 and cleared the Physical Efficiency Test (PET).
Subsequently, he was called for medical examination on 31st
January 2020 and was declared medically unfit due to ‘eye squint’
and ‘knock knee more than 5cm’. Aggrieved therefrom the
petitioner preferred an appeal before the Appeal Medical Board
requesting for Re-Medical Examination, as he was confident that
he was not suffering from any disability. On 15th October 2020, the
petitioner appeared before the Appeal Medical Board, but was
again declared medically unfit the same day on the ground that he
had ‘knock knees more than 5 cms’. Dissatisfied with these
findings, the petitioner got himself medically examined on 31 st
October 2020 at V.M.M.C. & Safdarjung Hospital New Delhi
where the Senior Resident, Central Institute of Orthopaedics on
examination found him without any disability.
