NAB arrests NTS chief, 4 others over paper leak



The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday in a raid on two Islamabad offices of the National Testing Service (NTS) arrested CEO Air Commodore (r) Dr Sherzada Khan and four other employees.

According to a local news channel, a NAB team, assisted along with Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) officials, also seized several documents after examining records at the two offices of the NTS, an entity that conducts tests for induction into the government sector.

NAB Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal had on Friday ordered an inquiry into a paper leak before the test dates.

The decision was made after the anti-corruption watchdog received a number of complaints from candidates ranging from papers being compromised before the tests, procedural irregularities in the hiring process, and other corrupt practices in the NTS.

NTS betraying candidates in the name of transparency

Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah had also formed a five-member inquiry committee to investigate allegations of irregularities in the entry test for medical colleges and universities conducted on October 22 through the NTS following widespread protests by candidates in the province.

Although, NTS has become a major testing authority over the last few years, there are more and more questions being raised in parliament about its roles and legal position.

A recent report of the auditor general of Pakistan revealed that NTS officials and related departments were not in the favour of a verification process.
