The Board of Intermediate Education, Karachi’s controller of examinations said his life is in danger after he refused to let the ‘cheating’ mafia tamper with the HSC examination results.
The in charge, Muhammad Azeem Siddiqui, decided to write a letter on Tuesday to the Rangers director-general to ask for protection.
“My family and I are in danger,” Siddiqui wrote. He asked the officials to take necessary actions as soon as possible.
He mentioned in the letter that members of the mafia were forcing him to accept answer scripts from fake examination centres, and were also asking him to exchange answer scripts.
He said they asked him to give passing marks to students who were failing. “After I refused to oblige, they used higher sources to persuade me,” he said.
Despite efforts of the individuals to tamper with the examination results, Siddiqui said that he made sure the HSC Supplement 2018 results were fair.
“The cheating mafia is taking money from students and putting their futures at stake,” he said.
Siddique rejected claims of corruption in the board and said none of the members were involved in corruption or unlawful acts, contrary to the allegations made in newspapers.
He gave permission to intelligence agencies to check his activities and his bank accounts’ status.
