ABBOTTABAD: In a first, the Abbottabad district administration has slapped a ban on pocket guides for matric exams, which are usually used for cheating in papers due to convenient size. Abbottabad Assistant Commissioner Usman Ashraf has seized more than 1,000 pocket guides and issued warning to the book sellers of sealing their shops if they were found selling material used for  cheating in exams. The district administration ordered raids during the ongoing SSC examination at different bookshops at College Road, Link Road and on Main Bazaar where officials confiscated and destroyed pocket guides for exams.
