Lahore: The Special Coordinator for Sports, Youth Affairs and Local Government of the Chief Minister of Punjab and the graduation degree of PTI MPA Bilal Asghar Warraich were declared false.
The Punjab University declared in a five-page report that Warraich’s Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree was fake.
The Higher Education Commission submitted his degree to the university for verification, and later to the degree review committee established to verify the degree of parliamentarians.
The report stated that the committee cross-checked the copies of MPA’s CNIC, metric and intermediate certificates, and the records of the exams he took.
Varech said that he passed the intermediate exam in 1995. However, according to the intermediate certificate he provided to the university, he passed the supplementary intermediate examination of the Faisalabad Commission in 1996.
“The Committee also observed that the candidate appeared in B.A annual & supplementary examination 1997 on the basis of wrong information about his Intermediate passing year.” the report read. He was not eligible to appear in the BA exam 1997.
“He cheated the university through giving false information regarding passing Intermediate Examination,” it added.
“After receiving verification report from the board of Intermediate & Secondary Education Faisalabad, the Intermediate Certificate of Roll No.11198 Supplementary Examination 1996 was not issued to Bilal Asghar & copy provided by candidate is found bogus.”
