DPHS principal resigns over fake degree

LAHORE, July 19: Defence Public High School (DPHS) Principal Ishtiaq Hussain has resiged on the instruction of the Cantonment Board education director for having a bogus degree of MSc mathematics. Talking to us on Wednesday Cantonment Board Education Director Lt Col (r) Suleman Babir said the allegation of having a fake degree had been proved during an inquiry against DPHS principal Ishtiaq Hussain.

He said Ishtiaq had been appointed as principal in 1995 on the base of his BSc degree. He said Ishtaiq had acquired the degree after his appointment so the board had no knowledge about the forgery. He said there was no further need to investigate the matter as the allegation had been proved. He said the school had good reputation and that it was necessary to take such steps. Meanwhile, a Punjab University (PU) official said that PU authorities had already issued the letter to the board the Ishtiaq had a fake degree. He said the PU had mentioned in the letter that there had been no degree issued with roll number 3491 to Ishtiaq Hussain and the degree had been issued under the roll number to one Mushtaq Hussain.
