Popular fiction writer and teacher Professor Zafar Iqbal has started a four-hour-long protest at around 8am on Friday at the Central Shaheed Minar against the alleged leak of question papers in the ongoing Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) examinations.
In several of his recent articles, the Shahjalal University of Engineering and Technology (SUST) teacher claimed questions of several HSC tests had been leaked. He had also produced ‘credible evidence’ to support his claims.
Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid had rejected the allegations.
Iqbal’s wife Yasmin Haque and a number of students and teachers from various institutions joined him.
