Karachi private school’s registration suspended for installing hidden cameras in washrooms


KARACHI – The Sindh Education and Literacy Department on Friday suspended the registration of a private school in the port city after officials detected hidden cameras installed in washrooms.

An inquiry committee of the department visited the school located in Safoora Goth after the team filed a complaint about the presence of hidden cameras.

During the visit, the education department team found the cameras installed in the washroom’s walls.

An order from the Sindh education department states, “Hidden CCTV cameras were installed behind a sheet with holes in the area of the washbasins situated with the toilets of girls and boys/washrooms, so that one can easily watch the movements of male and female students and staff.”

After detecting the cameras, the inquiry committee issued a show-cause notice to the school administration, directing its principal or senior official to appear before the department today (Nov 4) in order to explain their position on the matter.

As no official from the school appear before the team, an order to suspend school’s registration has been issued.
