Over the weekend, the Board of Secondary Education Karachi’s Website was attacked by hackers and as per reports, the cybercrime was conducted by Indians.
The website (www.bsek.edu.pk) is developed to regulate Matric education for the students of Karachi. It provides relevant results and details about admissions in the city’s educational institutions.
