CET mess up: High Court to open BOPEE report today
Senior Counsel Bashir Ahmad Bashir Asked To Act As Amicus Curie
D A RASHID
Srinagar, July 17: The Jammu and Kashmir High Court will Thursday open the sealed envelope containing report of the probe conducted by the Board of Professional Entrance Examination (BOPEE) into the paper leak of the Common Entrance Test (CET) -2013.
A division bench of the High Court comprising Justice Virender Singh and Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar directed the Chairman BOPEE and its Controller to remain present in the court on Thursday after Standing Counsel representing BOPEE, Moksha Kazmi submitted a sealed envelope in the court.
BOPEE also filed objections to the Public Interest Litigation which came to fore after the High Court took suo-moto cognizance of news reports in Greater Kashmir on leakage and cancellation of this year’s CET papers—that eventually triggered massive public outcry.
The division bench today asked Senior Counsel Bashir Ahmad Bashir to assist the court as Amicus Curiae in the matter.
The division bench also allowed an application of a candidate Urba Rashid and arrayed her as ‘intervener’ in the petition through advocate Mufti Javaid Ahmad.
Urba through her counsel in the application has stated that the cancellation of whole examination was carried out to benefit some blue-eyed persons and it was done without any justifiable reasons.
“The entire exercise for cancellation of Papers was undertaken to manifest disadvantage of the professional career of intelligent students in general and the applicant in particular,” reads the application.
That the papers were cancelled ostensibly under the pretext that “papers were leaked” was basically based on concocted facts and was with intentions to benefit the blue eyed persons, the application reads.
“It is submitted that the concerned authorities including Chairman BOPEE, R D Sharma and its controller examinations be asked to explain the reasons and the grounds justifying the action to cancel the papers,” says the application.
