Srinagar: A lecturer of a government college
was Friday arrested for allegedly setting a paper filled with
questions related to the recent unrest in Valley.

"Noor Mohammad Bhat, a lecturer at Gandhi Memorial
College, has been arrested," IGP (Kashmir range) S M Sahai
told reporters.

The students appearing in the English paper for BA, BSc and B Com annual examinations were surprised to find questions related to the five month unrest in Kashmir.
`Are the stone-pelters the real heroes?`, was one
of the questions asked.
The students were also asked to translate from Urdu to
English, a paragraph laden with allegations of human rights
violations by security forces.

Investigations revealed that the question paper was
set by Bhat, leading to his arrest.
