RBISE HSSC Part I results delay
Angry students torch RBISE office, record
Rawalpindi, Dec 16: Fed up with the delay in
declaration of Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC) Part I results by the
Rawalpindi Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, a large number of
enraged students on Thursday marched on one of the board offices, and set it on
fire. They tore off the office record and blocked the traffic for more than
three to four hours by burning office record and equipment on Sixth
Carrying burning sticks in their hands the angry students barged
into the board office at Sixth Road, scuffled with the board staff and took away
the record and set the building on fire. They also pelted stones on nearby
buildings and even hurled threats at motorcyclists who tried to evade them while
moving on the road.
A large contingent of police led by City Police
Officer (CPO) Azhar Hameed reached the spot and used teargas shells and resorted
to aerial firing to disperse the enraged mob.
spokesman Arsalan Cheema said that the HSSC Part-I result would be announced on
December 24, 2011. "The reason behind delay in the announcement of the result is
that we have not been able to finalise the full result," he said, adding the mob
barged into the office, snatched the whole record since 1978 and they beat up
the board staff. "As soon as the students entered the office I called the police
to control the situation," he added.
He said: "We would take strict
action against those responsible for creating such an ugly situation." He also
alleged that police could not control the situation properly while he had called
them in time.
The CPO said that they did not use
force against students to save precious lives. "If we had used force, several
students could have lost their lives or suffered injuries. I ordered my force to
disperse them peacefully. We have deployed cops in all board offices to avoid
any untoward incident again," he said.
students said that board officials were only giving dates to announce HSSC Part
I result. They are only giving us date after date. "We are suffering because of
the delay in the announcement of the results due to mismanagement," they added.
