He said 16 of the 815 candidates, who had passed the physical and medicals tests held earlier, did not turn up for the written exam.
"It is a clear rejection of regressive bandh calls, for choosing a brighter future," the official said.
Authorities in Kashmir today imposed curfew-like restrictions in many parts of the valley to maintain law and order in view of the protests following the killing of Bhat, a Hizbul Mujahideen commander, in an encounter with security forces.
