PHC Regularises 75 EPI Employees In Kurram Agency
PESHAWAR, 20 April: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) has ordered the FATA Health Department to regularise 75 suspended contractual employees of Expanded Programme for Immunisation (EPI) in Kurram Agency.
A two-member bench of the PHC headed by Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth heard the petition filed by Muhammad Riaz, Latif Khan and other contractual EPI employees on Wednesday. The petitioners’ lawyer Muhammad Ayub Shinwari told the court that suspension of EPI employees by the FATA Health Department is illegal, and they should also be regularised like other employees.
The court after hearing the arguments decided the case in favour of the employees.
