Lahore: Graduation degree of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA Bilal Asghar Warraich has been declared fake.
According to details, the University of Punjab issued a five-page report in which it declared the Bachelors of Arts (BA) degree of Warraich bogus.
The Higher Education Commission (HEC) had referred the degree of PTI MPA to the varsity for verification, which was later referred to the university’s Degree Scrutiny Committee constituted for verification of degrees of parliamentarians.
The report revealed that the committee cross-examined the copies of Warraich’s CNIC, metric and intermediate certificates with the record of the exams he had taken.
The report added that the PTI MPA had mentioned that he had cleared the intermediate exam in 1995; however, as per the intermediate certificate provided to the university, Warraich passed the supplementary intermediate exam in 1996 and not 1995.
“He appeared in the BA annual and supplementary examination 1997 on the basis of “wrong information about his Intermediate passing year.” the report said, adding he was not eligible to appear in the BA exam 1997.
“He cheated the university through giving false information regarding passing Intermediate Examination,” it concluded.
