Karachi—The anti-corruption department of Sindh government has arrested deputy controller, examinations of the Karachi Intermediate Education Board, Zubair Ahmad on charges of changing examinations mark sheets and benefitting monetarily from it.
Officials said that the arrest was made after prolonged enquiries in Board conduct whereby allegations were leveled that examinations results were changed for money by board officials. Raids were conducted on intermediate board office, and people were interrogated following parents’ complaint of the malaise afflicting a sensitive department.
Sources said that Zubair had made a fortune from the condemnable practice.
Meanwhile the Karachi police chief dispelled impression that schools were asked to enforce security rules compulsorily to check kids’ kidnapping incidents. Earlier police and Rangers had also tried to remove such fears.
But actually the Sindh education department is responsible for generating such apprehensions when it had ordered the schools in Karachi to take security precautions by raising boundary walls by ten feet high, and submitting a list of their staffers to concerned police stations, and post atleast two security guards at their respective institutions.
This had created panic among parents, following which the city police chief had to make a new announcement to ally such fears.
