GCU hits back at PU's remarks

LAHORE, July 17: The Government College University has taken a strong exception to the Punjab University's claim that the latter is following in the footsteps of the former in dealing with plagiarists.

Reacting to the PU registrar's statement that it had taken action against five plagiarists of the Center for Higher Energy Physics (CHEP) on the pattern of the GCU, a GCU spokesman said that economics department head Prof Qais Aslam had been removed from the chairmanship and the Tenure Track System after an inquiry committee confirmed plagiarism charges against him.

He said Prof Aslam had resigned due to his mistake and for the sake of dignity of the university and the syndicate accepted it. Dawn
