checkers, and that the board was holding an inquiry on the issue. He said that
students would be compensated for the loss with marks in accordance with their
result percentage in others papers.
One of us: A PBTE official said that the board administration had made efforts to find the missing
papers, but in vain. He said that the board's Secrecy Branch was responsible for
the loss. He said that it was not for the first time that answer sheets were
'misplaced'. However, he said that the officials had failed to recover the
papers this time. He said that the board officials were facing problems in
compiling results, and were under pressure as the board had decided to announce
the result in August. Another PBTE official said that someone within the board
must have misplaced the papers because no outsider was allowed to enter the
PBTE's Secrecy Branch.
No delay: Asad Butt said that the board had
dispatched the papers for checking, and had put the bundle on a bus at the Nawan
Kot bus station. He claimed that when the board officials reached Thokar Niaz
Baig, they discovered that the bundle was not there. He said that the officials
had tried their best to find the papers, but failed. He said that the answer
sheets were of different subjects of DCom, and that enquiry on the issue was
still underway. "Such mishaps are not unusual. We have a lot of pressure on us
as we have checked 349,000 papers of 47,000 students," he said. However, he said
that result would not be delayed. "We were going to announce the result on
August 25, but now it will be declared on August 8."
Board's law on
missing papers: Asad Butt said that according to the law, all affected students
would be given marks in accordance with their result percentage, but if a
student was not satisfied with the result, he/she could reappear in the
examination without paying the examination fee. He said that no one could use
the missing answer sheets for his/her benefit, as the papers were from across
the province. "It is difficult to identify the papers," he added.

lost answer sheets had increased their tension.
