LAHORE: Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday has directed the NAB Lahore director general to complete the inquiry regarding the transcript issue of Sargodha University within a week and submit its report to the court.
The CJP was hearing a suo moto case on the petition of students of private campuses of the university at the Lahore Registry of the Supreme Court.
He further asked the NAB DG to hear the University of Sargodha Vice Chancellor Dr Ishtiaq Ahmad who exposed the sub-campuses scam involving influential people. The Chief Justice expressed concern over the poor quality of the sub-campuses adding that they were distributing degrees without a regular faculty in place.
While appearing before the court, University of Sargodha VC informed the court that the private sub-campuses students’ transcript issue has been resolved according to the court’s order. He highlighted the unlawful constitution of the five sub-campuses including Lahore and Mandi Bahauddin campuses which were not even approved by the university syndicate.
He said they allowed admissions over and above the allocated number of seats in different programmes. Moreover, the sub-campuses conducted exams of their students without any control and involvement of the varsity.
The VC further said the private campuses had become money making machines, cheating the poor and lower middle-class parents and playing with the future of students.
