Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf MPA Bilal Asghar Warraich used a fake intermediate certificate for his BA admission in 1997.
The revelation was made by Punjab University to Lahore High Court.
MPA Bilal Asghar Warraich was elected as independent candidate to Punjab Assembly in 2018.
Moreover, he is Chief Minister Usman Buzdar’s special coordinator on sports, youth affairs and local government.
A citizen, Zahid Rasool ha sfiled a petition in the LHC seeking disqualification of the MPA for having bogus academic certificates.
The court had directed the PU to hold a scrutiny into the MPA’s credentials.
Warraich also provided another intermediate certificate which he acquired after passing the supplementary examination in 1996 from Faisalabad BISE under roll number 11198.
The committee observed that the candidate appeared in the B A examination in 1997 by cheating the university on the basis of wrong information, he did so as he want eligible to appear.
He was repeatedly asked to appear before a PU disciplinary committee during 2013, but he didn’t . Consequently, the committee proceeded against him ex-parte and held him guilty.
On an appeal of the MPA, the PU syndicate summoned the record from Faisalabad BISE that found the intermediate certificate issued in 1996 bogus. The syndicate in its 2015 decision quashed Mr Warraich’s results of the intermediate and the B A, the report concludes.
Justice Ayesha A Malik would resume hearing of the petition after summer vacation in September.
