Over 2000 degrees stolen from Karachi University
Karachi: In a rare incident of theft at a public sector university, unidentified miscreants stole over 2,000 degrees from the printing press of the University of Karachi (KU) located inside its premises.
As per details, the incident occurred in the early hours of Friday when some miscreants made off with two bundles of degrees from the varsity' printing press.
Campus Security Adviser Dr Khalid Iraqi, when contacted, said that the theft incident occured at official printing press of university, where degrees and certificates were in process of printing. "Criminals entered the press from the side of a rooftop and theft two bundles, which might be carrying more than 1000 degrees but all of them were unsigned, unassigned and blank. However, Iraqi was not confirmed about the exact number of degrees stolen.
The official of examination board has been directed to cancel and blacklist the missing degrees through identification of their serial numbers so that nobody may misuse them in future," Iraqi asserted.
He added that university had lodged the FIR at the Mobina Town police station. The university, with help of the police, would investigate the matter to take action against the culprits, he added. "Few days back the same kind of theft incident occurred at Bureau of Compilation, Composition and Translation (BCC&T) KU in which Rs 40,000 were looted and FIR of that incident was also lodged at the same police station. Investigations of both the incidents are under process, he said.
Meanwhile, the KU official, on the condition of anonymity said that insiders of university were involved in both incidents, saying such happenings were impossible without the help of an insider. He added: "Police also nabbed some suspects in connection with the previous theft incident, but they were released after intervention of some influential sources." He claimed there was a covert mafia indulged in providing fake degrees to people, who need it for jobs and other purposes.
He said that blank certificates were of great use for the mafia as they use them after forged stamps and signatures. Such degrees, however, can easily be nullified by the KU administration, as it would not have any record at examination department of the varsity, he told.
According to police, the KU administration had registered the case of stealing of at least 2000 degrees. The officer added that mugger barged into the printing press and stole degree bundles. The FIR no 13/13 has been registered under section 380 of Pakistan Penal Code and further probe has begun. Daily times
