Question paper regards ‘PaK’ as Azad Kashmir, sparks controversy

Jammu: An examination conducted by Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Recruitment Board reportedly had a question which described ‘Pakistan-administered Kashmir’ as ‘Azad Kashmir’, after which the person who framed the question was blacklisted, an official said.

In the examination, a question read, “Jammu and Kashmir has an international border with China in the north and east, and the Line of Control separates it from the Pakistan-controlled territories of Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan in….”

Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Service Selection Recruitment Board (JKSSRB) Simrandeep Singh told PTI a probe was being held and the question has been nullified.
