SHC issues notices to DUHS

Karachi, Aug 2: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Wednesday issued notices to the vice chancellor, registrar, controller of examination and principal of the Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) on a petition of a student against his rustication by the university administration.

Mohammad Usman Tariq, a final year MBBS student at DUHS, submitted that the university administration had all of sudden increased the examination fee of first year MBBS from Rs2,100 to Rs2,500, which created unrest among the students of the university in general and the students of first year MBBS in particular.

He said the students of the DMC staged a peaceful protest against the fee rise, and a delegation of students including the petitioner had a meeting with the VC sort out the issue.

The petitioner submitted that on July 21, when he visited the office of the principal, a security guard manhandled him and threatened to kill him at the behest of Vice Principal Qazi Irshad.

He said that on July 23, the principal, without serving any notice, charge sheet or personal hearing, rusticated him from DMC for a period of one year by issuing a memorandum letter.

The petitioner's counsel Sarwar Mohammad Khan contended that the impugned order issued by the respondent is illegal as it failed to appreciate the valuable rights safeguarded by law under the Dow University Disciplinary Act. He submitted that the impugned memorandum was issued on the recommendation of the Executive Committee instead of the Disciplinary Committee in violation of the DUHS Act.

The court was prayed to declare the university's memorandum with regard to rustication illegal and without lawful authority and suspend it till the disposal of the petition. The SHC's division bench, after preliminary hearing issued notice to the respondents for August 7 to submit their comments. The news
