Fake degrees lead to termination of officials in Balochistan
QUETTA: The Balochistan Education Department has terminated the services of five employees, including two daughters of Chairman Balochistan Public Service Commission Ashraf Magsi, following an investigation by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) regarding fake degrees.
“All five employees were working in grade 17 and have been terminated after verification by the university proved that their degrees were fake,” a NAB official requesting anonymity told Dawn.com.
Earlier, NAB had conducted raid at the office of BPSC chairman after receiving complaints about irregularities and violation of merit in appointments.
NAB had also detained the directors. However, the officials were set free following a bail order from the Balochistan High Court.
NAB has also arrested former Director School Yousaf Kahoda for violating merit in terms of appointments. A NAB official said that Kahoda had appointed dozens of employees in the provincial education department in violation of merit.
