LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan's son was favoured in his physics practical exam with extra marks by a teacher to bump up his Intermediate Exam result, an inquiry report released Monday confirmed.

The son of Chohan, currently Punjab's minister for colonies, was given an additional 16 marks, bringing his total up in the FSs/Intermediate physics practical exam from 14 to 30 marks.

A request was made to take relevant action against the professor who increased the final result of Chohan's son, Fahad Hasan, from 14 to 30 marks.

In this regard, the chairperson of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) for Rawalpindi, Dr Ghulam Dastagir, said the final result of Chohan's son, Fahad Hasan, would now be released after legal consultation. It was earlier reported that Dr Dastagir had allegedly misused his authority to increase Hasan's marks.

Chohan, on the other hand, said the BISE Rawalpindi's report on the issue of marks without merit came after he had requested that an inquiry committee be set up to probe the matter.

The inquiry report does not mention any pressure tactics used to increase Fahad Hasan's marks, the provincial colonies minister said.

It is noteworthy that Chohan once held the post of Punjab's information and culture minister before having to resign over anti-Hindu remarks after a video of Chohan making the bigoted comments while responding to India's rhetoric over the Pulwama attack had gone viral.
