ISLAMABAD The plagiarism committee constituted by the Karachi University has recommended that the Acting Chairperson of Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) and DG Federal Directorate of Education (FDE), whose thesis was found fake, may resubmit her thesis again after making corrections in it. The Higher Education Commission has finally received the recommendations of the sub-committee constituted by the plagiarism committee of Karachi University to review the issue of fake thesis of Shaheen Khan who is enjoying dual posts and benefits of two important educational institutions. According to the commission, she translated her thesis from a document of OIC and it is plagiarism. The commission has been reviewing the recommendations sent by the university, which would be forwarded again to the committee for consideration. The committee comprised university professors and a representative of HEC Dr Iqrar who is a Vice Chancellor of Agriculture University Faisalabad. It has been learnt reliably that sub-committee has recommended that the thesis be reviewed again and submitted to the university, which is against the plagiarism policy of HEC and if once the thesis is submitted by the student and degree is issued by the university, it cannot be reviewed again and only can be cancelled or declared genuine. It cannot be sent to the Board of Advance Research and Plagiarism again as well as once the thesis is approved by the board it cannot be sent to the board to review. She was living in Islamabad, so her work is clearly a fraud, as physical presence is needed for the PhD programme. The degree given to her by Karachi University can be cancelled. And if the university does not take any action then there are rules that the commission can take action in this regard, informed a senior official. According to plagiarism policy, if the university does not take any action within 2 months then the commission committee would take up the issue and the committee could cancel the degree if it is proved that the thesis was copied by the scholar. Its interesting to note that she has worked as an officer responsible for sports in HEC where she was found involved in some financial corruption. She was suspended and an enquiry was held. She was found guilty but the commission was under immense pressure from the high officials to let her off the hook.
