651 students caught cheating in BISE, Mirpurkhas exams

Mirpurkhas:21May:A total of 2,962 students were appearing in LLB Part I exams, 2,119 in LLB Part II and 1,296 in LLB Part III. More than half of these students are enrolled in the two law colleges in Hyderabad district – 2,464 at Jinnah Law College and 1,406 at Sindh Law College.

The students had to appear in two papers of Part I, three of Part II and four of Part III before the postponement. “The vice-chancellor will convene a meeting with the principals of concerned colleges … [and] he will issue directives to ensure stopping the unfair means in exams,” said Mugheri. “They [principals] will have to give in black and white that they won’t let such things happen in [the] future.”

It is uncertain whether the SU will constitute an inquiry committee to probe the involvement of the colleges’ teachers in the unfair practices during exams. On Saturday, LLB part II’s paper, law of transfer of property, was postponed. Two papers of part one and two have been postponed.

Cloaked disclosures

“We are going to issue the list of those military [officers], police officers, [bureaucrats] and other powerful people who have been caught in impersonation during law examinations,” Mugheri wrote on the SU’s Whatsapp group, titled ‘Sindh University News.’

However, he later told The Express Tribune over the phone that the controller exams may only be able to share the roll numbers of these candidates and not their names and that too on Monday, May 22.

“[We] … unanimously condemn, reject such illegal, unlawful decision of [the] administration of Sindh University and demand that the examinations should continue as per the schedule,” reads a resolution passed by SHCBA Hyderabad’s managing committee after a meeting.

The meeting, chaired by SHCBA, Hyderabad, President Ayaz Hussain Tunio, also took exception to the sudden postponement without informing the law colleges in advance. The legal fraternity warned that if their demand is not accepted, the association will provide legal support to the candidates.

“… University of Sindh on mere allegations [and] rumours of copy cases [should] not play with the future of poor students of law,” the resolution added. Sindh Bar Council’s [SBC] member, Advocate Fazal Qadir Memon, also criticised the SU’s decision and assured the candidates of the SBC’s support.The news.
