Negligence charges: BZU controller of exams made OSD

MULTAN, Jan 22: The Bahauddin Zakaria University (BZU) vice-chancellor has made examination controller Malik Munir Hussain an officer on special duty (OSD) over his alleged negligence after complaint of cheating at an examination centre in Sahiwal emerged. According to a handout issued here on Friday, vice-chancellor Dr Muhammad Zaffarullah also formed a three-member committee to probe the matter in detail. It stated that the vice-chancellor also took notice against the examiner over complaint of cheating at the Government Nangal Imbia High School No. 1, Sahiwal, during LL.B Part I, 2010 first annual examination. “When the complaint was received, Dr Mutahir was tasked with probing the matter and the Friday`s action has been taken on the preliminary inquiry report submitted by him,” the handout stated. As per initial inquiry report, the controller had refused to hand over related record of the centre to the inquiry officer and this finding led the vice-chancellor to make the incumbent controller an OSD. The charge of the post of controller was also given to Dr Mutahir. A three-member committee consisting of Dr Younis Nadeem, Dr Muhammad Farooq and Nazir Ahmed Chishti was also formed to investigate the matter. Meanwhile, Malik Munir said that he had been removed from his office following a conspiracy as he had documentary proof of corruption the vice-chancellor had committed in connivance with former treasurer Muhammad Younis, resident officer Dr Altaf and additional registrar Sohaib Khan Rashid. He said that the chief minister had directed his inspection team to hold an inquiry against the corruption of vice-chancellor and he (controller) was to testify in that probe as a witness and that`s why he had been removed from his office. He said that Dr Mutahir was very close to the vice-chancellor and that`s why he had been made acting-controller. He accused the vice-chancellor of `unofficially` allowing Dr Mutahir run the examination branch for the past three years. He said that he had called Dr Mutahir to his office Jan 16 and asked him to him away from the printing process of examination papers and this indeed had annoyed him. He said that no action could be taken against him without obtaining approval from the BZU syndicate and he was not bound to obey the illegal orders of the vice-chancellor. He said that making controller an OSD instead of taking action against students, chief inspector, superintendent or the deputy superintendent of the examination centre, was entirely unjustified. He said that he went to Sahiwal on Jan 19 to inspect the centre along with assistant controller Zameerul Hassan and to investigate the cheating issue. He said that later he proceeded for his hometown, Jhang, on the same evening after knowing about the illness of his father and sent a leave application for three days but the vice-chancellor did not accept the application. He demanded of the chief minister take notice of massive corruption in the university as well of his removal and get the whole issue probed by an independent inquiry officer from outside the university.Dawn
