Why Omar is afraid of making CB report public?
Copying scam by Peerzada's son

Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 18: Notwithstanding assurances of a free and fair probe in copying scam involving former Education Minister Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed's foster son, the report submitted by the Crime branch has not been made public till date.
Reports suggest that former IGP Crime Branch Raja Aijaz Ali submitted the report to the Chief Minister in the winter capital early this year. The report indicted six Board of School Education (BOSE) officials including the incumbent Chairman, Dr Sheikh Bashir Ahmad, former Deputy Director Academics, Mehraj-ud-Din Zargar and four others for helping the Minister's son.
Informed sources in the CB said that the investigation revealed the Minister had misused his official position to help his son pass the matriculation examination in 2009. "Most of the BOSE officials during questioning revealed that there were directions from higher-ups to facilitate copying of Minister's son," the report says.
The report said there were clearly two hand writings, confirmed by forensic experts, on three answer sheets of the Class 10 exam taken by the Minister's son. Sayeed is a Congress nominee in the State Cabinet. The answer sheets of Urdu paper was, as per probe, written by Mehraj-ud-Din Zargar while answer sheets of Mathematics and Geography were written by Imtiyaz Ahmad an education department official who was posted as Deputy Superintendent at the said centre.
Imam Sauban, Peerzada Sayeed's son, had passed his Class 10 exam in 2009 allegedly with the help from BOSE officials.
During investigation, SSP Crime Branch and his team quizzed more than a dozen officials including BOSE chairman Dr Sheikh Bashir, former Joint Secretary examination, former Assistant Secretary secrecy and former Deputy Director, Academics. Besides, CB seized number of documents including examination enrollment form of Imam, anonymous complaint forwarded to Chief Minister's office and Raj Bhavan.
The findings, according to the sources, have also revealed that Urdu, Social Science (Geography) and Mathematics papers of Minister's son were written in two hand writings.
A Srinagar based newspaper had on January 30 produced clinching evidence about how the BOSE officials assisted Education Minister's son bearing Roll No. 228211 to use 'unfair means' during 10 class examination.
Pertinent to mention that only few weeks back the office of the Chief Minister had refused to provide the copy of the investigation report to an information seeker Shahnawaz Mir from Budgam under State RTI Act and had directed CB to provide the same to the applicant.
The reluctance of the Chief Minister to provide a copy of the CB report has raised a question mark over the credibility of the coalition government. Is Chief Minister afraid of making the report public for political reasons?
