GILGIT: A burqa-clad man taking an examination illegally under his wife’s name at a testing centre at Gilgit was arrested by police, witnesses told The Express Tribune on Tuesday.
The incident occurred at an examination centre for women constables.
Eyewitnesses said that the veiled man left his seat and attempted to run away when a female police constable supervising the examinations approached him to check his identity. However, male police officials who had cordoned off the area immediately caught him and detained him for investigation.
“He was sitting amid dozens of veiled women taking tests,” said a witness, adding that his ‘dubious’ acts while taking the test led to his arrest.
