On the other hand, the Karachi Intermediate Board has initiated action against its officials. It recently wrote a letter to the anti-corruption department, formally requesting the registration of a criminal case against its officials.
Two former chairmen, examination controllers, and eight other officials are accused of fabricating exam results for Karachi Intermediate Board students.
A case has been officially filed against two former chairmen, Dr. Saeed-ud-din and Naseem Ahmed Memon, in connection with the alleged fabrication of exam results.
The examinations held between 2021 and 2022 are at the center of the controversy, with allegations of fabricated results.
