SPLA sees foul play in attorneys transfer
Karachi: The Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) has criticised the government for transferring the district attorney, (east), Abdul Khaliq Nadim, saying that the action would have a negative impact on the Islamia Science College case.
A spokesman for the SPLA, Prof Iftikhar Azmi, said here on Wednesday that it was beyond one's comprehension why a high-ranking attorney who was dealing with the Islamia Science College case effectively had been transferred at a time when the case was to be heard in a couple of days.
Suspecting some foul play in the transfer move, he pointed out that the government had earlier transferred the principal of the college, Prof Abdul Mubin Khan, who was well-versed with the case. And now, he added, it had transferred district attorney Abdul Khaliq Nadim, who was handling the case effectively.
Prof Azmi urged the Sindh chief secretary to withdraw the attorney's transfer order in the larger interest of the students and teachers of all the colleges and schools being run under the roof of the Islamia Science College building complex as he had done in the case of the college principal.
The spokesman apprehended that the attorney's transfer would put the fate of over 18,000 students of the educational institutions functioning on the college premises at stake. Dawn
