Sindh High Court expressed surprise over the admission policy of Dow University of Health
Sciences (DUHS).A bench of the high court was hearing a petition regarding admission of the students
from districts of interior Sindh in Dow University. The counsel of the university informed the court that
only a student having Karachi domicile is eligible for admission in DUHS as per the policy decided by the
syndicate of the “Why only Karachi ? Where the children from other districts will go,” the bench
questioned the university’s lawyer. “A child from Sujawal should apply for medical education in Punjab,
Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,” the bench questioned.“You had earlier said that only the
children of Sindh will get admission (in the university).” Now saying that only children from Karachi will
be eligible for admission,” the court remarked. “Each division has its own separate university,” the
university counsel said. “Why an intending student could not get admission in the university on merit,”
the bench asked the counsel.
