In this article, a new censoring scheme is considered, namely, a middle part of a random sample is censored. A treatment for reconstructing the missing order statistics is investigated. The proposed procedure is studied in detail under exponential distribution which is widely used as a constant failure model in reliability. Different approaches are used to obtain point and interval reconstructors and then they are compared. A numerical example is presented for illustrating all the proposed inferential procedures. Eventually, we present some remarks including how the results of the paper can be used when the parameters of the exponential distribution are unknown.
