It can't form I suppose. The radicals won't be stable.

cylcohexene when made to react with chlorine in presence of sunlight, it gives two products 3-Chlorocyclohexene (major) and 1,2-Dichlorohexane (minor). In first case allyl free radical is formed which is more stable due to resonance gives major product and in second case it is addition reaction involves ion mechanism, which is less stable. and coming to 3,6-Dichlorocyclohexene product it is not possible because molecule is symmetrical. you will get only monochloro derivative in case of allyl free radical generation. whether you consider clockwise or anticlockwise it will yield only one monochloro product.
