To get a fair idea of the depth of the corruption inside the Board of Professional Entrance Examination (BOPEE) during the time of Mushtaq Peer’s reign as its chairman, all one had to do was to browse through the recent court judgement to know the money that was paid by parents and students to buy question papers from the Board.

As hundreds of students were toiling hard to do well in the Common Entrance Test of 2012, many parents found a way to let their children have a free ride by paying huge amounts of money to buy question papers. All those who paid the money went on to gain admission into medical college. A mother paid Rs 23 lakh for her son; a father Gulam Mohi-din Lone paid Rs five lakh for his son Mushtaq Ahmed Lone; Basher Ahmed Dar paid Rs 13 lakh, Yasir Yusuf Dar paid Rs 7 lakh.

Bazilla Bilal’s father paid Rs 10 lakh, Abdul Qadir Rather paid Rs 2.5 lakh while one of the minor (Juvenile) candidates was provided papers free of cost as she was the cousin of one of the brokers.

All the students, Bazilla Bilal, Mushtaq Ahmad Lone, Yasir Yousuf Dar, Ruhail Amin, Imtijaz-ul-Hussain Shah, Yasmeen Jan, Arooj Mushtaq Kenu, Heena Saleem, Mehvish Bashir, Beenish Bhat, and Mansha, have been sentenced to an imprisonment of one year by the anti-corruption Special Judge Kashmir (Srinagar) Yash Paul Bourney.

For some reason the mother who had paid the highest amount of Rs 23 lakh was never charged with a crime by the police and the court judgement noted with dismay that the lady has been let off without any reason.

Similarly, another suspect whose role surfaced during the investigation has also been let off, the court noted.

While referring to the Supreme Court judgment, it said general rule of criminal justice is that a crime never dies. The principle is reflected in the well-known maxim “lapse of time is no bar to Crown in proceeding against offenders.”

“Anyway, a crime never dies and it is still not too late to take the call and proceed further with the investigations with respect to the part not done hitherto in discharge of their duties in true sense,” the court said.

“Present case, as the charge sheet unfolds, stems out from the worst kind of lust for money and it depicts that human ingenuity knows no limits,” the court added.
