BSEK suspends 8 from SSC invigilation
KARACHI: Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) has suspended eight invigilators from duty Wednesday as they failed to fulfil their responsibilities during the ongoing Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exams.
The News reported Thursday that BSEK Chairman, Anzar Hussain Zaidi announced suspension of six officials in a press conference at the Board Office. However, the BSEK Chairman didn’t reveal the identities of the officials, which cast an impression of doubt.
Later in the day, Controller Examinations Kaleem Asghar Kirmani clarified that a total of eight invigilators have been suspended as another two persons were removed from duties a couple of days ago.
Giving reasons behind the move, the BSEK chief said that the action was taken following complaints by the joint vigilance team of the Board and the Governor House.
“The vigilance teams did not perform as was expected of them. Three centre superintendents and three members of the vigilance teams have been removed with immediate effect,” Anzar Hussain Zaidi said.
The suspended include Akbar Masood Khan of Government Boys Secondary School, Gulshan-e-Iqbal Block-6, Niazuddin Meo of Delhi Government Boys Secondary School, and Ms Rizwana, the headmistress of University Campus.
Those suspended from Government Boys Secondary School, Gulshan-e-Iqbal include Faheem (a junior clerk), Abdul Majeed, and Shoaib Ahmed. Mohammed Ismail, a vigilance officer from ADM School in Baldia, was also suspended from duty, while Ayesha and Nida Fatima of the University Campus were also suspended.
Two men from the Delhi Government Boys Secondary School, Mohammad Yaseen and Abdul Kareem Solangi, were also suspended two days ago.[google-map]
