LAHORE - The Lahore High Court was told that three laptops had been given to lecturers, who had declared themselves as students, during a ceremony held at Government College University on Tuesday.

The LHC was further told that these three, Sarah Sarfraz, Zafar Iqbal and Saman Aleem, were studying for M.Phil at GC University Lahore, while working as lecturers at different colleges at the same time. Sarah Sarfraz, whose CGPA is 2.9, is working as lecturer at Kinnard College, Zafar Iqbal, whose CGPA is 3.0, is a lecturer at Garrison College, while Saman Aleem, whose CGPA is 3.17 has also been recruited as lecturer at Government Ayesha Degree College. This was told by Asghar Javed, who requested the court to stop Tuesday’s ceremony. He said that he had a CGPA of 3.27 in the first and second semesters but he had been dropped from the final list of nominees by the GCU officials, as he was a government officer, while the names of the three lecturers had been included.

He requested he court to direct the Punjab Government to include the petitioners’ name in the final nominee list.

After recording the argument, Justice Umar Ata Bandial disposed off the petition and directed GCU officials to decide the matter according to the contentions of the petitioner.
