BISE calls for security measures at exam halls

PESHAWAR, Oct 23: The Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dera Ismail Khan, has asked the government for enhanced security measures at the examination halls in order to conduct the upcoming Secondary School Certificate examinations in a peaceful manner.

The Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Dera Ismail Khan, is set to conduct supplementary examinations of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) in South Waziristan Agency and in the adjacent districts of Tank and Dera Ismail Khan from October 24.

The letter was sent to NWFP Governor Ali Mohammad Jan Orakzai and provincial caretaker chief minister Shamsul Mulk last week by the controller of examinations of the BISE, Dera Ismail Khan.

He has expressed concern over the deteriorating law and order situation and said that the bad law and order situation could affect the peaceful conducting of examinations.

He had asked for foolproof security to ensure peaceful conducting of examinations in a letter, copies of which had also been sent to the provincial inspector-general of police and heads of other law-enforcement agencies.

The letter said that examinations would continue from October 24 to November 10 for which they needed complete security. He said they needed personnel of law-enforcement agencies in and around the examination halls so that students could feel secure and attempt their papers in a peaceful atmosphere.

The controller has particularly asked senior officials to depute lady police force in the examination halls of girl students. The spate of suicide attacks and bomb blasts now and then in FATA and Southern districts of the NWFP could jeopardize examinations if measures were not put in place, it added.

The letter has pointed out the sensitive examination halls in Dera Ismail Khan, Tank and South Waziristan Agency and has asked the government to depute police and paramilitary forces so that examinations could be held peacefully. Dawn
