A lecturer of a government college was on Friday 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) SM Sahai told PTI.
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.
