KARACHI: Registrar, Federal Urdu University of Science and Technology (FUUAST), Prof Dr Fahimuddin has dispelled impression created about forced retirement of its Vice Chancellor (VC), Prof Dr Zafar Iqbal.
In a statement on Friday, he said reports published in a section of the press regarding the FUUAST VC were absolutely baseless as Sindh
High Court had issued stay order against the decisions of university’s senate committee on December 20.
“In compliance to SHC orders Prof Zafar Iqbal is duly realizing his responsibilities as FUUAST VC,” clarified the university’s registrar.
There is also no truth in the news report that Karachi University Vice Chancellor, Dr Muhammad Qaiser may have assumed the additional charge of acting VC, FUUAST, he added.
