ISLAMABAD – The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday issued notice to Allama Iqbal University Vice Chancellor Nazir Ahmed Sangi in a case seeking removal of him from the position on charges of fake degree of PhD.
A single member bench of the IHC comprising Justice Noorul Haq N Qureshi resumed hearing of a plea seeking removal of the VC from the post. The plea has been filed by the Employees Welfare Association of the university though Khurram M Qureshi.
During the course of hearing, the counsel apprised the bench that Sangi was holding a PhD degree from the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom, but unfortunately neither the particular subject of alleged PhD was mentioned in the degree nor area of research has been mentioned in the degree.
He argued that as per the PhD degree of the respondent dated July 20, 1989, the admission was given to him on July 6, 1989 which shows that Sangi was the only person all over the world who passed PhD exam along with research work within 14 days.
The degree of the Sangi appeared doubtful as it also contained grammatical mistakes in the language, he added. He requested the court to remove Sangi from the position and declare him incompetent and ineligible for government service.
