Karachi: 27 caught cheating in inter exams
Karachi: The officials of the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) caught 27 unfair mean cases on Thursday during the visit to different examination centres. Meanwhile, the candidates blamed the centre superintendents and other college staff for collecting the multiple choice questions (MCQs) 10 minutes before the actual time. They also blamed that MCQs were distributed 10 minutes late.
Chairman BIEK Anwar Ahmed Zai expressed his disappointment over the absence of law enforcers and said that the centre superintendents and candidates were under pressure at a number of examination centres.
In his letter sent to the Home Department, the director general Rangers and high-ups of the local police, Zai once again requested the authorities to deploy law enforcers at sensitive examination centres.
According to the BIEK, Government Superior Science College, Shah Faisal Colony; Government Degree Boys College, Nishter Road near KMC Store’ Government Degree Boys College, Gulistan-e-Jauhar; Islamia Government Science College, Jigar Muradabadi Road; PECHS Education Foundation Government Science College, Kashmir Road; and Jamia Milia Government Degree College (Morning) are among the sensitive examination centres.
“A reminder has been sent to the authorities concerned and the Board had once again asked them to make necessary security arrangements at the examination centres,” Zai said. “The college staff and candidates feel so insecure in the absence of LEA. The deployment of LEA will help the centre superintendents to stop the external influence at the examination centres,” he further said.
The Board officials and media during the visit once again observed the electricity issue at the examination centres. The male and female candidates were not comfortable in the absence of power supply while they were busy in solving their papers.
