The son of a Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) MNA has been caught red-handed fielding another candidate in his place in the matric examination. The incident took place on Saturday in Kamoke, a city in the Gujranwala district of Punjab.
According to the reports, Farhan Zulfiqar Bhinder, the son of a PML-N candidate, Zulfiqar Bhinder, was appearing in the matriculation examination held under Gujranwala Board. However, instead of attempting the exam himself, he fielded a fake candidate named Khabeeb in his place for the paper of General Science.
The superintendent of the Government High School, Kamoke exam center caught the candidate and barred him from attempting the exam. He then called the police, after which Khabeeb was taken into custody while Farhan fled the scene.
