Leakage of examination paper
Karachi: An inquiry has been initiated by University of Karachi (KU)
Controller of Examinations Dr Nasiruddin Khan into the issue of the recent
leakage of examination paper at the university.
Dr Khan said
that KU Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof. Pirzada Qasim had taken note of the incidents
of irregularities in the examinations department and had asked Dr Khan to take
measures to stop such practices that were ruining the reputation of the
"I had requested the KU registrar to issue letters of
explanation to the three department employees - Muhammad Arif, Tajuddin and
Muhammad Bashir - who were found to be involved in wrongdoings. The registrar
issued the letters but had to withdraw them after protests from the KU Employees
Union. The union members locked the Administration Building and created a hue
and cry. This has emboldened the culprits," Dr Khan said.
He added that
vigilance officers reported 14 cases of impersonation last Friday and Saturday.
The cases were sent to the examinations department for further action. "Quick
justice", however, was not possible because the process of punishing the
impersonators is long and slow and generally ends in a stalemate, Dr Khan said.
"Some powerful people always come for the rescue of the culprits, which is
extremely frsutrating," he claimed.
Interestingly, event though
investigation into the recent cases of impersonation is still in the embryonic
stage, Dr Khan has already received some entreaties, some threats and some
orders for various quarters to hush up the case.
A senior professor of
the university, requesting anonymity, wondered why the university was not filing
first information reports (FIRs) against the culprits. "In my opinion, which my
colleagues agree with, these are criminal cases and should be handled by the
police and the courts of law. The examinations department should not be bothered
with them," he said.
Dr Khan conceded that this was the right approach
and confided that the university high-ups were in the process of envisaging ways
that would make it possible for the administration to file criminal charges
against the offenders. They will be apprehended by the Rangers and the KU
Security staff and will be handed over to the police after regular procedures
including the filing of FIRs.
A source in the university informed
that certain quarters were trying to reinstate Dr Anwar Zaidi, a teacher in
the Mathematics department. This was the precise reason why a lot of confusion
was created by these people. It may be recalled that Dr Zaidi was the controller
of examinations and Semester Cell incharge. He was removed from both posts after
allegations against him were proved.
Karachi University Teachers Society
(KUTS) President Dr Abid Hasnain has condemned the cases of paper leakages and
asked the university administration to be more vigilant and strict on this
issue. He has also criticised the holding of graduate-level college examinations
in the university. "It is creating a law and order situation for us. Our
resources are stretched. Imagine more than 12,000 students descending on the
university at a time. It should be stopped altogether," he concluded.

penalise Khatri and dismiss him. Sources maintained that Khatri himself
confessed to the charges levelled against him during a hearing chaired by
chairman of the board of directors.
Khatri's career has been rife with
allegations since his appointment as a typist in the Board on January 25, 1995.
On October 09, 2001, the Board had to issue an explanation letter No. BIE/Admin
(Estt)/PM-139/578/2001 to Khatri for not taking interest in his work, and a
month later, a reminder was also issued to warn him about negligence at work,

annual increments and his demotion from the post of a typist to a junior clerk.
The Board had also received a complaint that during suspension from service,
Khatri had taken Rs75, 000 as loan on interest basis, sources said.
March 2004, the then BIEK in-charge of enrolment also lodged a complaint against
Khatri, alleging that he had found him involved in "suspicious activities."
Later on, the Board received various complains that Khatri had collected fees
from candidates, but did not deposit the forms at the Board
Khatri was also sent a show-cause notice, bearing office letter
No BIE/Admin (Estt)/PM-139/603/2006 in March 2006, for deliberately changing the
examination centre for practical examinations without the approval or permission
from the competent authorities.
Meanwhile, BIEK Chairman Anwar Ahmed Zai
said that in August 2009, the Board had to suspend Khatri for issuing forged
admit cards to candidates. Despite repeated warnings and a couple of
suspensions, Khatri did not change his attitude, and left the Board with no
other option but to dismiss him, he said.
Zai said that Khatri has filed
a mercy petition, but there is no room left for considering his appeal.
He said that the Board would take serious action against all those found
guilty of misconduct and corruption.
