PHC issues notice to Public Service Commission over paper leak
April 13, 2018

PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) has issued a notice to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Public Service Commission (PSC) and provincial government in a case pertaining to paper leak in the written examination for the vacant posts of the tehsil municipal officers (TMOs).

A two-member bench of the PHC comprising Justice Waqar Ahmad Seth and Justice Musarrat Hilali issued the notice, directing the secretary, director and director examination of PSC and provincial government to submit reply before the next hearing.

The candidates affected from paper leak had filed a petition in the court seeking cancellation of the written examination for the posts of TMOs.

The petitioners’ lawyer said TMOs posts were advertised in BPS-17 through the PSC and the test was held on January 31, 2018. He said the question paper was leaked two hours before the test and also went viral on the social media. He contended that later on the commission had issued two results of the test as the first result was issued in February and the second in March. He said there were huge discrepancies in both the results. He pointed out that the PSC for the first time displayed the results through computerised national identity cards (CNIC), which also created doubts of nepotism and favouritism in the examination.

The test was conducted under the PSC for 200 vacancies of TMOs, for which around 40,000 applicants had applied.
