On Thursday, teachers of the COMSATS university Abbottabad Campus boycotted classes on Thursday to protest the alleged occupation of a faculty residential block by the campus director. COMSATS Director had formed a team consisting of six faculty members to look into the case. Once the finding report is received, action will be taken against the people involved in the act.
Teachers, representatives of the administration, and other members of staff boycotted their respective duties and said the strike would continue until an impartial inquiry was held into the ‘occupation’ of a faculty residential block by the campus director and ‘misuse’ of a university guesthouse by the HEC director.
COMSATS media manager said that a committee comprising senior faculty members has been formed which includes Dr Choudhary Arshid Mehmood, Dr Shakir Hafeez, Dr Nauman Khan Tareen, Syed Fida Hussain Shah, Muhammad Shoukat, Naeem Ahmed, Ehtisham Gul and Adam Zahoor.
He said that the committee will submit its recommendations within 10 days. The findings of the inquiry committee will be made public, he added.
