PESHAWAR The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is caught in yet another case of nepotism as two officials of Gomal University, DI Khan, have been appointed on lucrative posts for allegedly facilitating KP Senior Minister Rahimdad Khan in getting a 'fake degree. TheNation learnt reliably that two blue-eyed officials of Gomal University DI Khan, namely Dilnawaz and Abdul Rauf, in violation of rules and regulations have been given lucrative jobs allegedly for helping to arrange bogus degree for Senior Minister Rahimdad Khan. According to sources, Dilnawaz has been appointed as DG Projects Monitoring Cell in P&D department by the provincial Government whereas Abdul Rauf has been appointed as Director Local Fund Audit. Earlier, Dilnawaz had been elevated to the post of Additional Secretary P&D and then he was appointed as Chief section foreign aid and now he has been given the charge of DG Project Monitoring Cell in P&D department. Another worth mentioning point here is that Senior Minister Rahimdad Khan is also incharge of the P&D department. It is pertinent to mention here that Dilnawaz was working as Director Administration in Gomal University DI Khan and Abdul Rauf was serving as Additional Director Finance in the same university. As they are not civil servants but university employees, therefore according to rules they can not be posted as civil servants. Furthermore, sources informed that Abdual Rauf was retiring on May 31, 2011 and he was posted as Director Local Fund Audit on May 13, 2010 which is in clear violation of rules. As per services rules of the government, an official can not be transferred in the last year of service. Besides, as per policy of the establishment department these officials can not be given government posts as they are not civil servants and are university employees. According to sources the VC of Gomal University, Mansoor Kundi, had also cornered these officials for their alleged corrupt practices. Sources in the university told TheNation that these blue-eyed persons had been awarded for their alleged involvement in preparing fake degree for Rahimdad Khan It is pertinent to mention here that a case had been filed in the Peshawar High Court against Rahimdad Khan by his rival candidate in the last election for having a bogus degree. During the hearing, a representative of the Gomal University in Dera Ismail Khan on October 11 informed an election tribunal of the Peshawar High Court (PHC) that the varsity had no record of the degree of Rahimdad Khan, which he submitted with the Election Commission for contesting general elections held in 2008. During the question-hour session, the incharge of Degree Cell of Gomal University Dr Hafeezullah informed the court on oath that he had checked the record of degress and did not find the name of Rahimdad Khan in it. Dr Hafeez also showed his ignorance about issuance of graduation degree to Rahimdad when his lawyer produced before him the same for recognition. He said that signatures of vice-chancellor and controller of examinations were genuine, but he did not know who had issued the degree, as it did not exist in the record. The next hearing in the case will be held on November 1.
