Governor to resolve varsities' land dispute
Peshawar: The Peshawar High
Court (PHC) Friday directed the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor, who is also the
chancellor of the province's public sector universities, to decide the dispute
concerning buildings and land between the University of Peshawar (UoP) and the
Agriculture University within three months.
A division bench of the high
court comprising Chief Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan and Justice Mazhar Alam Miankhel
issued directives to the chancellor of the universities in two writ petitions by
the UoP filed against the Agriculture University (AU), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and
Khyber Medical College (KMU).
The bench directed the governor to decide
the dispute within three months. In another dispute between UoP and KMU, the
bench asked the governor to constitute a committee under the prescribed rules to
resolve the issue between the two universities.
Deputy Attorney General
(DAG) Muzammil Khan appeared for the UoP and contended that before 1980 the
Agriculture University was a faculty of the UoP. He submitted that in 1981, the
government had given it the status of a university and it became an autonomous
body under the NWFP Agricultural Ordinance 1981.
Under section 46 of the
Agricultural University Ordinance, he said, the AU was bound to vacate the
buildings and land, if required, and in the meantime it would pay rent to the
UoP.He said before 1975 the KMU was a faculty of the UoP. He said under the NWFP
Khyber Medical College and Hayat Shaheed Teaching Hospital (Taking Over) Act,
1975, the KMU became a medical college and then an independent university. Under
the KMU act, it was bound to vacate the buildings and land, if
Under the law, he said it was the provincial government's
responsibility to provide land and buildings to the newly- established
universities, but they continue to occupy the land and buildings of the

universities to vacate the buildings and land, but they refused to do
so.Besides, he said, the AU and KMU had promised to pay rent to the UoP for
using its buildings, but this was not done. He said the UoP required these
buildings and land for further expansion.
Under the university act in
case of a dispute between two universities, the governor of the province as the
chancellor of the public universities has the power to resolve it.It is
pertinent to mention here that the UoP had also filed similar petition against
the University of Engineering and Technology to vacate the buildings and land.

to the governor for resolution.

Islamabad: The committee, which was constituted to probe into the case of alleged molestation
of a student of the Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU), has recommended forced
retirement of the controller examination.
According to sources, the
findings of the report have proven the controller examination guilty and
strongly recommended to the university authorities to immediately send him on
forced retirement. The inquiry committee comprised QAU National Institute of
Psychology Director Dr. Anila Kamal, Chemistry Department Chairman Dr. Saqib
Ali, Professor Dr. Wasim of the Biochemistry Department and Campus Manager
Colonel (r) Nadeem Gill.
Sources said that the committee would present
its report and recommendations in the meeting of the syndicate to be held today
(Saturday). The members of the syndicate include faculty members,
representatives of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and representatives of
The case of alleged molestation of a female student of
the QAU was reported last month after which QAU Vice-Chancellor Dr. Masoom
Yasinzai immediately constituted a committee to probe into the issue. The
committee, after a one month investigation, compiled its findings, according to
which, the controller examination was found guilty. During investigation, the
committee recorded statements of the victim, the alleged culprit and also those
working closely with them.
An official told this scribe that the VC has
asked the committee to present its report in the presence of syndicate members
in order to avoid any controversy. People could doubt the authenticity of the
report and recommendations so the VC has asked the committee to reveal the
findings of the report in the meeting of the syndicate, he said.
the controller examination was sent on forced leave on the recommendation of the
committee. The committee believed that the presence of the controller
examination on the campus could cause a controversy.
This was the first
case of its nature in which the complaint of the victim has been addressed so
quickly. Previously, such cases were hushed up, whether it occurred on the
premises of an office or an academic institution.
It is for the first
time after the passage of law against sexual harassment that a committee has
been constituted within three days of the incident and the report would be made
public within thirty days of the incident.
QAU Gender Studies Department
Head Farzana Bari said that they were hoping that a fair decision would come out
in the meeting. "It is in the interest of the university to take action in order
to check such cases in future," he said.
Earlier, she said that the
culprit was exerting pressure on the victim and her family to take the case
back. She believed that only speedy inquiry into such cases could ensure the
prevention of such cases in future.
Sources said that the issue related
to the alleged harassment of another girl by her teacher would also be discussed
in the meeting. "Though the meeting has one point agenda, the other issue
regarding the alleged harassment of another student will also be discussed in
the meeting," sources said.
This scribe tried to contact the relevant
officials of the university for comments but they were not available. An inquiry
committee member, Dr. Anila Kamal, refused to make any comment regarding the
report and said that the report would be made public within two days.
