HYDERABAD: The Sindh Inquiries and Anti-Corruption Establishment has sought comments from the Sindh University (SU) over the recent appointment of Dr Arfana Mallah, a teachers’ leader and a prominent women rights activist, as a BPS-21 professor. The inquiry was initiated on the complaint of Dr Azhar Ali Shah, an associate professor at SU, who alleged that she submitted fake experience records for the elevation. According to him, her stint as a research associate at Pakistan Science Foundation was actually seven months shorter than the experience of 24 months she claimed to have. However, Mallah said the university has already conducted three inquiries on Shah’s complaint since her appointment as associate professor in 2012 and she has been cleared in all three.
