The National Testing Service (NTS) is under fire for allegedly leaking the exams for Lahore Electric Supply Company Recruitment’s (LESCO) recruitment.

Another user urged the government to investigate the recruitment of distribution companies. Users also alleged that two students who got 97 percent, were the sons of a former director of LESCO, Muhammad Qasim Jan.

Users claimed that the LESCO’s exam papers were leaked as the results of certain students were much higher than their counterparts appearing in exams of other distribution companies (DISCOs).
A user shared the result sheet, which showed more the results of more than 30 students in exams of various DISCOs. Many students, who got around 60-70 percent in the rest of their exams, got more than 90 percent in the exam for LESCO.

What's the purpose of setting exam if hiring is already done internally? Why testing agencies are playing with hard work of deserving ones. This should be stopped. We want Retest and proper investigation#CorruptionInLescoTest #BanNts @ImranKhanPTI @WaseemBadami @PTIofficial
