KU syndicate gives clean chit to ICCBS director

According to a statement issued by the Public Relations Department of the university, Vice Chancellor Professor Dr Khalid Mahmood Iraqi chaired the meeting, in which the harassment committee presented its report on the suicide case of HEJ student Nadia Ashraf.

In the report, the committee did not hold ICCBS Director Prof Dr Iqbal Chaudhry responsible for the suicide of Nadia Ashraf. The report said that the student had no contact with Dr Iqbal Chaudhry, so he could not be held responsible for the suicide. The report was endorsed by the syndicate.

The meeting disapproved the appointment of Assistant Professor Dr Qamar Al-Arfeen at the Center for Digital Forensics considering the fact that there was a third division in the academic record. It was decided in the meeting that the post would be re-advertised.

The members of the syndicate would meet the chief minister in the coming week so that the concerns of teachers could be conveyed directly to the government.
