KARACHI: As reported by the Dawn News on Thursday, the Police on Wednesday arrested two principals and senior staff of as many technical colleges for their alleged involvement in helping some students use unfair means while taking their annual examinations, official said.
They said that the police raided the Ghausia Polytechnic College in Orangi Town Sector 10 and found that some students of private institutions were using unfair means under the alleged supervision of the teaching staff there.
“Actually the students were taking their annual exams held under Sindh Board of Technical Education,” said Orangi Town SHO Inspector Raja Tariq.
“The students of the Ghausia Polytechnic College were bound to take their exams in a nearby Government Monotechnic College, but the management of the two colleges in connivance with each other made such arrangements that they took their exams in their own college, which is in violation of defined rules.”
He said the police also found some teachers busy in solving the question papers for the students. A few students claimed that they had paid Rs2,000 for each examination, he added.
“We have arrested the principal of the Government Monotechnic College, Imtiaz Rizvi, and the principal of the Ghausia Polytechnic College, Ghulam Ghaus. Three teachers — Ahsan, Nazeer and Kamal — have also been arrested,” he added.
The police later registered a case (FIR 665/2010) against the suspects on behalf of the state.
