MUZAFFARGARH: In the recent recruitment for educators, more than 40 teachers got jobs on fake documents but only seven teachers have been booked.

Sources in the education department also claim that since 2012 more than 100 teachers were recruited in the education department against fake degrees.

City police have so far registered a case against only three female teachers, three male teachers and a computer operator of monitoring team for getting educators’ jobs on fake documents.

Some teachers who had got jobs on fake result cards of the National Testing Service (NTS) sent their resignations to the department on Saturday.

Talking to Dawn, DCO Hafiz Shaukat Ali said he was making a team which would probe recruitment made in the department since 2012. He said he was looking into the matter as new cases were surfacing through the media and he would make a special team which would grill the scrutiny committee and monitoring officials who were responsible for verification of documents and degrees.

The district education officer said the education department had announced educators’ vacancies in different categories in Jan 2015. He said forms and applications submitted by applicants were scrutinised by a special team made by the DCO and EDO education. Later, letters of appointment were issued to the successful applicants. He said when the verification of documents started and they contacted candidates to ask them to receive their letters, some documents were found bogus.

When Dawn contacted secretary education Punjab he was not available for comments.
