Students protest against inefficiency of BSEK

Karachi, Aug 3: Hundreds of protestors thronged the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) on Thursday and chanted slogans against the administration, demanding immediate removal of the Acting Controller of Examination, Bizatullah Khan and other officials.

The protestors who claimed to be students of SSC Part II blocked the streets and created chaos. According to details, the protest was carried out because the recently announced results SSC Part II Science group had several errors such as those who were passed were declared fail, while some of them were marked absent in one or more subjects, though they appeared in all the five papers. This created panic amongst the students, who immediately rushed to the board asking about the factual position. Keeping in view, the board established four counters, two each of boys and girls to clear-up the mess, which they claim to be human errors.

Realising the sensitivity of the situation, the board officials closed the main door and called the police, who are now guarding the building in order to avoid any mishap. In the meantime, the demonstrators tried to climb the building walls, Khan immediately rushed towards the gate and asked the protestors to produce their admit cards so that their problem could be resolved, but the latter were unable to present them.

Khan said that some miscreants entered the building and tried to sabotage the whole process which was being carried out peacefully. He termed it a conspiracy against him by some plotter. However, he also informed that about 800 complaints of the students were received so far, which had some minor errors and were corrected on the spot.

Giving the details of the counter established for students' help, Khan said that it will continue to work till Saturday, after which any such complaints will not be entertained as it functions till late in the evening with additional staff working to resolve the problems of the students. The news
