KARACHI - The administrators of various schools and hundreds of students staged a protest outside the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) building against the non-issuance of roll-number slips before the SSC examinations 2012.

Reportedly, the board is reluctant to allow hundreds of students to be appeared in the upcoming matriculation examinations, starting from the next month, as they are over 20 years of age.

The schools administrators said that the Sindh High Court has already given verdict in the favour of students and ordered the board to issue the roll-number slips to about 3,000 students aged over 20 years.

They said this is the matter of hundreds of students’ future which is on stake.

Peak Private Schools Association President Haider Ali said that the board officials were trying to keep the students away from their right of education, which is a crime. He said that students have been deprived of practical examinations.

He appealed to Chief Justice of Pakistan and SHC Chief Justices, Sindh Governor, Chief Minister, Education Minister to allow these students to be appeared in the said examination for the sake of their future.
