The police have also opened a Hit and Run case after a motorist driving a white Mercedes Benz with registration numbers CMX 390 L ran over two applicants walking in the vicinity of the college, seriously injuring one of them.

The police appeal to anyone with information to contact the nearest police station or call the toll free number 08600 10111.

“The situation at the college has now returned to normal after the college management decided to suspend the registration process until Monday next week,” added Mojapelo.
