Controller of exams sacked

Karachi, May 4(The News): The Controller of Exam, Board of Secondary Education Karachi Salim Khan was sacked on alleged charges of misappropriation, irregularities and establishing exam centres at the schools, which were already blacklisted the previous year, sources confided.

Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad on receiving complaints immediately fired the controller of examination and gave charge to the Deputy Cotroller of Exams, Bizatullah Khan with immediate effect.

It is worth mentioning here that Salim Khan had instructed the Special Vigilance Team (SVT) to raid those schools, which were suspected of using any such illegal means.

On the instructions, the SVT team raided the schools and nabbed candidates involved in using unfair means and also debarred more than 300 students for cheating during the SSC Part II exams, which ended on Wednesday.

However, the sources viewed that the termination of the controller of exams at a time when the SSC Part I exams are scheduled to start on May 17, would create problems with particular reference of setting up of exam papers, which Salim Khan was personally monitoring at night during its publication at the board's press.
