Academic qualification of Minister’s son under cloud
As Per Rules Candidate Indulging In Copying Has To Be Disqualified: Experts
Srinagar, Feb 9: Validity of the educational qualification of Education Minister Peerzada Muhammad Sayeed’s son has come under cloud in the wake of Crime Branch (CB) findings on use of unfair means by him to pass matriculation examination.
CB has indicted Minister’s son, Imam Souban, for using unfair means in connivance with the officials of Board of School Education (BOSE) and Education Department to pass his matric examination, two years ago.
Incidentally, the minister’s son recently passed the 12th standard examination with ‘distinction.’
While BOSE hierarchy is tight-lipped over the fate of class 10th and 12th qualification of Imam Souban, the rules of the state’s examination regulating body provide that his qualifications of both the classes should be declared “null and void”.
“There are clear-cut guidelines that the candidate indulging in the copying should be disqualified in the subject in which he had resorted to unfair means and in graver cases examination of all the subjects can be cancelled. Since Minister’s son has resorted to unfair means in three subjects, it implies that his result of Matric and 12th class automatically stands cancelled,” the officials of BOSE wishing anonymity told Greater Kashmir.
“It is necessary to pass Matric as well as 11th class to appear in 12th. Since the Minister’s son has failed to clear Matric, as per CB findings, then automatically his 12th class result should also be cancelled,” they said.
Pertinently, Peerzada’s son secured 387 marks out of 500 in 12th class to join the list of distinction holders.
On Wednesday, the CB report submitted to CM clearly states that there were two hand writings, confirmed by forensic experts, on three answer scripts of the Class 10 exam taken by the Minister’s son. The answer script of Urdu paper was, as per probe, written by Mehraj-ud-Din Zargar former deputy director academics while answer scripts of Mathematics and Geography were written by Imtiyaz Ahmad an education department official who was posted as Deputy Superintendent at the Al-Ameen School, Humhama where the Minister’s son appeared in 10th class examination.
On January 30, this newspaper exposed how the son of Education Minister Peerzada Muhammad Sayeed resorted to unfair means to qualify his matric examination in 2009. Following the expose, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah had given seven days to the CB to present the report on the matter. After questioning at least one dozen officials of BOSE and Education department, the report was submitted to CM yesterday.
