Court  directs KU to implement SHC order on lecturers’ appointment



The Sindh High Court on Wednesday directed Karachi University to convene a meeting of its syndicate within three days to implement an earlier court order about appointment of lecturers to the mass communication department.

A two-judge bench headed by Justice Irfan Saadat Khan directed the Karachi University to file a compliance report till Jan 5 and warned that in case of non-compliance, an appropriate action would be taken against the contemnors.

Rizwan Tahir and three others, through their counsel Asim Iqbal, filed an application seeking contempt proceedings against the KU vice chancellor and the registrar for defying an earlier order of the  Sindh High Court.

The lawyer submitted that the petitioners had applied for the post of lecturers (BPS-18) and passed written tests and interviews as well as the NTS exam with flying colours and the selection board in its meeting held in May 2019 had recommended them for the posts.
