City-based Rishabh Gupta (25), has bagged All India Rank 36 in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) exam conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC). 

The 25-year-old engineering graduate cleared the exam in his first attempt. He was also a Class X topper in Patiala in 2009.  Four months ago, Rishab bagged a government job as an Inspector in the Co-operative Societies.

He said he has always aspired to become a civil servant. “I have appeared in the UPSC exam. Now, I have cleared the CAPF exam and will be recruited as Assistant Commandant in the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).” The UPSC had conducted a test for recruitment to the CISF, BSF, ITBP, CRPF and SSB under the CAPF and has selected 416 candidates from all over the country.
