Mardan: Varsity officials suspended for leaking paper
MARDAN: Authorities of the Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan (AWKUM) have suspended two employees and handed them over to city police for leaking the English paper of BA (third year) scheduled for Thursday, sources said. However, they added that the paper was held as scheduled as a new paper was set overnight Thursday.
The sources said that on a tip-off Vice Chancellor DrIhsan Ali and registrar Prof Sher Ali raided a place outside the university around midnight on Wednesday and recovered the English paper of BA (third year).
“After this the officials raided the university`s examination block and according to their preliminary investigation they suspected that two key punch operators (KPOs) of the university, identified as Murad and Waheed, were responsible for the leak,” said the sources.
They said that during probe the KPOs admitted before the VC and other university officials that they had received Rs50,000 for leaking the English paper.
“Both the officials have been suspended and handed over to police for further investigations,” said Prof Sher Ali, when contacted. He, however, said that the university had also constituted an inquiry committee to find out other members of the gang.
Prof Ali said that the university officials cancelled the `out` paper and prepared a new English paper on the same night, which was held as scheduled on Thursday.
