Disabled candidate alleges BOSE playing with his ‘career’

ANANTNAG: The Jammu and Kashmir State Board of School Education is allegedly playing with the career of a 12th class physically- disabled student by denying him scribe for the examination.
Rayees Ahmad Teeli son of Farooq Ahmad Teeli, of Seer Hamdan, Anantnag, developed severe fracture in his right arm while operating a mixer which resulted permanent disability to the arm.
“I had already appeared in three papers and only paper was left when the tragedy struck last year. Since I remained admitted in the hospital for more than two months I missed the last paper,” Teeli told Kashmir Reader.
He said after losing a year the Board authorities are now trying to spoil his future prospects. “I have done all the preparation for the remaining paper. But the BOSE authorities are denying me the scribe required to write for me,” Teeli told Kashmir Reader.
The class 12th students said that for the past ten days he has been doing rounds of the BOSE office Srinagar and Anantnag for scribe permission but of no avail.
“The officials at head office Srinagar tell me to approach sub-office Anantnag while as the officials at the latter say that the granting permission was not in their competence,” said Teeli.
He said his visits are not well received by the BOSE authorities.
Secretary BOSE, Renuka Choudary, when contacted said that they have not denied permission for scribe to any candidate with disabilities.
“Whosoever came to us we helped him. If someone has cooked a different story we cannot help. You send the candidate to my office I will sort out the matter,” she told Kashmir Reader.
