KARACHI The Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) has become an insecure place for students, especially girls, who visit there for the solution of their examination-related issues, as the members of a student wing of a nationalist political party, have taken control of BIEK premises. As per complaints, gathered by The Nation, female students are usually the prime targets of this group. The political slogans are written on walls, while the administration of the board is unconcerned towards the issue. It is pertinent to mention here that the premise of the BIEK is surrounded by residential area of a particular linguistic group. The huge premises of the board lacks proper security arrangement that encourages the miscreants to harm visitors. An official of the board told The Nation that staff of the board was also suffering from transgression by the members of this group. He said, The bad appearance of this group in the premises of the board has become dreadful for the employees of the board. Around 50 to 60 activists of a students political group appear in the premises on daily basis. They disturb visitors and even sometime steal petrol from motorbikes parked there. Recently, an employee of BIEK Accounts section, Aftab, was manhandled but the administration did not pay heed to the issue. Employees are frustrated due to unconcerned behaviour of the BIEK administration. In fact, the administration is really helpless in front of these powerful miscreants. These miscreants offer solutions to the problems of visitors also, and charge money on the same account. But they do not complete the work, and on inquiry they beat visitors. It is learned that the BIEK administration has already demanded of the high-ups to protect the lives of its employees, visitors and innocent students from the miscreants. It is also learned that the administration has also demanded of the high-ups of Pakistan Rangers to permanently deploy personnel at the board to restore the peace at the board. It is worth mentioning that the administration of the Government Shipowners Degree College, which is also surrounded by the same locality, is also seeking help from the higher authorities to maintain law and order. situation at the college, as the law enforcement agencies have failed to stop the illegal activities of the same student wing in and around the college. When Deputy Secretary BIEK Imran Chishti was contacted by The Nation, he said that the BIEK administration was trying its best to create fearless environment at the BIEK but some miscreants were creating hurdles in this regard. He said that the administration has already informed the authorities concerned about the prevailing situation in the board. When Spokesman of ANP Qadir Khan was contacted by The Nation, he denied the involvement of his student wing in the poor law and order situation of the BIEK, and said the only wall-chalking is not evidence against them. He said if any responsible member of his partys students wing was found involved in the criminal activities, the party could take action against him. He said there was no unit office of his partys student wing in and around the BIEK so the involvement of their students was out of question. If BIEK administration has any proof against our students, they can contact us and we will take action against the culprits, he concluded.
