KARACHI: A three-member investigative committee, tasked with scrutinizing anomalies in the results of examinations administered by the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK), has unearthed extensive irregularities.

The committee was formed by Sindh’s caretaker minister Justice (retired) Maqbool Baqar to investigate the issue after the majority of students failed in the inter exams and protests were held.

The committee in its report revealed that the results of English, Biology, Chemistry and Physics were ‘tampered’. Eight officers of the intermediate board of Karachi have been held responsible for the matter.

Former chairmen, Dr Saeedudin and Naseem Memon and others have been held responsible for the tampering in the results of Karachi inter exams, while the Sindh government has penned a letter to the anti-corruption department for registration of cases against the responsible.
