ISLAMABAD: A lecturer and a controller examination of the Quaid-e-Azam University (QAU) have been forcefully retired on Saturday on charges of sexual harassment against their students a couple of months ago.
The decision to forcefully retire the faculty members was taken in a meeting, while a formal notification will be issued shortly.
The meeting was chaired by vice chancellor of the university Masoom Yousafzai and attended by Supreme Court judge Nasirul Mulk, former federal Information Minister Khalid Kharal, Higher Education Commission (HEC) members and representatives of the cabinet division.
The decision was taken after an inquiry committee found the two faculty members guilty of sexual harassment charges.
Both members failed to prove themselves innocent in front of the committee.
