LAHORE: Suspending termination of 19 teachers of Aitchison College, a single-judge bench of the Lahore High Court has issued notice to the principal with directions to submit reply on Tuesday.

Adeel Akhtar and other teachers had filed petitioner and submitted that the principal terminated them from their services while he had no authority to terminate them under the law.
