Rawalpindi: RBISE’s ex-controller examination arrested
RAWALPINDI: The Anti Corruption Department (ACD) has arrested the former examination controller of the Rawalpindi Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (RBISE), Amjad Iqbal, on the allegation of preparing fake results of HSSC Part-II Examination 2011, clearing about 50,000 students with excessive marks, ACD sources said.
Three officials of the RBISE, including Asif Bhatti, system analyst and in-charge of the Computer Section; Asif Masood, programmer; and Sarfaraz Ahmad, data processing officer, have already been arrested by the ACD and later sent to jail on judicial remand following a high-level inquiry to ascertain facts and fix responsibility.
Kazim Naqvi, an officer of the ACD, when contacted by this correspondent, confirming the report, said that a high-level inquiry was conducted on the orders of the Punjab government to probe into the incident of announcing fake results. The inquiry committee termed the result concocted and fake and fixed the responsibility on Amjad Iqbal Bhara who managed to prepare unchecked results with the help of Asif Bhatti, Asif Masood and Sarfaraz Ahmad and recommended rechecking of papers. He said that the rechecking proved fake.
Naqvi said that the ACD, following the inquiry report, arrested Asif Bhatti, Asif Masood and Sarfaraz Ahmad, but ex-controller Amjad Iqbal Bhara managed to escape, adding that the ACD, finally, arrested him on Friday and got five-day physical remand for further investigation.
