Lahore: Girl booked for impersonating brother in exam
LAHORE: In what could be termed a unique case of impersonation in examination in the history of the country a girl student wearing wig and dressed like a boy appeared in the ongoing matriculation examination in place of her real brother. The girl, Iqra Ali, was attempting Class-X paper of the Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education (BISE) Lahore at Centre-B of the Punjab University examination centres, Wahdat Road impersonating her brother when she was caught red–handed by the exam staff deputed at the centre.
She was handed over to Muslim Town police station and an FIR was registered against her.
According to police, the girl student was wearing a wig and was in a boy’s getup who put her future at stake just because to save her real brother Nazad Amanat s/o Amanat Ali (Roll No 193243) from academic failure. The police said in her statement the girl confessed that she had done wrong but she did just to secure the future of her brother.
Interestingly the BISE top management remained unaware of the whole development and only came to know about the same through media reports in the evening. Instead the BISE spokesperson shared information regarding impersonation cases unearthed from centres set up in the board’s jurisdiction as far as Manga Mandi.
BISE Chairman Muhammad Nasrullah Virk did not bother to attend phone calls while the board’s spokesperson expressed ignorance and said the superintendent himself handled the case and did not inform the board officials.
