PU begins probe into another plagiarism case
Lahore: The Punjab University administration has identified a case of plagiarism involving a couple.

The couple - Prof Dr Zaid Mahmood of Punjab Universitys Institute of Chemistry and his wife Associate Professor Dr Syeda Rubina Gilani of University of Engineering and Technology's Chemistry Department - produced two research papers containing material from three research papers already published in international journals.

Punjab University Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran has formed a three-member committee headed by Punjab Director Public Instruction (Colleges) Dr Jalil Tariq to probe the alleged plagiarism case and fix the responsibility. The committee has Lahore College for Women University Chemistry Department Chairperson Prof Dr Bushra Khan and Punjab University Additional Registrar Prof Dr Aurangzeb Alamgir as members.

The committee has been given documents, which say Prof Mahmood (principal author) and Dr Gilani (co-author) produced research papers titled "Synthesis and Characterisation of E-Bonded Phenyle-Palladium Complexes with Triphenylantimony Ligands" and "Synthesis and Characterisation of Allyl Complexes of Molybdenum with Schiff Base Ligands" and published these in the Pakistan Journal of Scientific Research in 2002.

However, it has been reported that the first paper was plagiarised from two research papers "Substitution reactions of trans …" and "Carbon-antimony bond fission in reactions of triphenylantimony with palladium(II)…" published in Polyhedron and Journal of Organometallic Chemistry in November 1998 and May 1996, respectively. These papers were published by Ayfer Mentes, Ramond D.W. Kemmitt, John Fawcett and David R. Russel.

Reports say the second paper was plagiarised from a research paper titled "Allyl complexes of molybdenum with

Schiff base ligands. The crystal structures of…" published in Journal of Organometallic Chemistry in 2002 by the same authors.

The complaints submitted to the PU vice-chancellor say "as far as the concepts of these papers are concerned, they are 100 per cent similar. As far as data and results/paper material is concerned, it is approximately more than 80 per cent copied". In the first paper the complaint says, "Mr and Mrs Mahmood have tried to change the language of the discussion". In the second paper, the complaint says: "Even the discussion has been copied. If we go into the detail of these papers, the original work of both papers has been copied 100 per cent."

Probe committee convener Dr Jalil Tariq said the committee held a meeting and reviewed the 'plagiarised' research papers.

He said the papers were almost 80 per cent plagiarised. He said the committee's maiden meeting decided to send a notice to Prof Mahmood and seek a written reply from him. He said his office had received Prof Mahmood's written reply. He said the committee had found another research paper of Prof Mahmood plagiarised. He said the UET administration would take up the case against Prof Mahmood's wife.

Prof Mahmood said the university had initiated the plagiarism case against him to malign him. He said there were clear instructions from the Higher Education Commission that no plagiarism case should be initiated involving research papers published before 2007.

Prof Mahmood said the research papers in question had zero impact and he did not claim any promotion on the basis of these papers. "Currently, I am serving as professor under the Tenure Track System and my all research papers were scanned by the HEC before offering me the TTS post," he said. Dawn

Review of MPhil admission ordered
Lahore: Punjab University (PU) Vice Chancellor has directed the varsity s Chairman of Central Admission Committee to call a meeting of the Admission Committee of the Institute of Communication Studies to review the recent admissions of MPhil programme following alleged irregularities in the whole process.

It is learnt that VC Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran passed these orders during a meeting of the varsity s Advance Studies & Research Board (ASRB). Sources said Central Admission Committee s Chairman Prof Dr Amin Athar apprised the VC that there were serious allegations against the admission committee of the ICS including alleged violation of the varsity s Doctoral Programme Coordination Committee (DPCC) rules.

They further said the VC had also received complaints from some of the candidates as well in connection with the recent MPhil admissions at the ICS owing to which he directed Dr Amin Athar to call the meeting of the institute s admission committee and review the whole process.

The sources further said there was a possibility that the varsity VC could cancel the whole admission process at the ICS since the selected candidates had yet to submit dues while classes were also yet to commence.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that a candidate who was dropped in the interview despite clearing entrance test had submitted a complaint to the VC on Monday alleging irregularities in the selection process. The candidate alleged that the interview panel did not ask the relevant questions and dropped her without any reason. Earlier, another candidate Waqas who had topped in the entrance test and was dropped in the interview had also raised serious concern over the whole process.

It is pertinent to mention here that the ICS administration is also being criticised for including junior and contractual faculty members in the admission committee.

Dr Amin Athar did not attend the call despite repeated attempts on his cell phone. When contacted, ICS Director Ahsan Akhtar Naz rejected the allegations over the admission process claiming that the admission committee was duly approved by the Departmental Doctoral Programme Committee as well as DPCC.

To a question as to why second senior most faculty member of institute Dr Afira was not included in the ICS admission committee, Dr Naz said she did not hold a PhD degree in the Mass Communication.

He also said that the candidates who failed to secure admissions always made hue and cry. He claimed that the entire process was fair and just and admissions were made on merit. The news

VCs' body suggests abolition of entrance test
Lahore: The vice-chancellors sub-committee that met here on Monday recommended doing away with the entrance tests for admission to medical and engineering institutions in Punjab and suggested introducing aptitude test instead.

The sub-committee was formed after a meeting of all public sector universities' vice-chancellors and controllers of examinations, which was called on the instructions of Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, who had taken serious notice of the recent lapses in the entrance test and examinations.

The sub-committee of vice-chancellors met at Punjab University on Monday and discussed that the entrance test system was launched in 1998 when the Boards of Intermediate and Secondary Education across Punjab were not following uniform standards. However, participants of the meeting observed that the education boards were now following uniform standards.

They stressed that campaign against 'booti' mafia at the level of examination centres be stepped up.

Sources said that the VCs observed that the academies' mafia was milking millions of rupees from students in the name of preparations for the entrance tests.

They also suggested that human's involvement in examination system should be minimised and computerised examination system be introduced. They suggested that question banks should be developed and examinations be conducted on modern lines.

The VCs also agreed that if the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences and the Virtual University could introduce computerised examination system, why others could not adopt and implement it. Dawn
