BIEK’s version sought on former exams controller’s plea against removal

Karachi:July 22:The Sindh High Court directed on Friday the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) and others to submit comments on a petition filed by a former BIEK examinations controller against his removal from the post.
The petitioner, Imran Khan Chishti, submitted that he was appointed as the BIEK controller of examinations by the controlling authority on August 2 last year under the Sindh Boards of Intermediate and Secondary Education Ordinance.
Chishti said he was removed from his post by a former BIEK chairman on March 10 this year and he was directed to report to the board without due process of the law. He said respondents had given the charge of BIEK controller of examinations to the deputy controller on own-pay scale (OPS) which was contrary to the law. Chishti said he had been kept away from the post without any justification and while had been illegally adjusted on a temporary post.

The court was requested to declare him the BIEK controller of examinations. Headed by Justice Mohammad Shafi Siddiqui, the high court’s division bench directed the BIEK’s counsel to file comments on the petition but dismissed the application for urgent hearing.The news.
