PESHAWAR, 13 November: The appointment of Dr. Saqlain Naqvi as vice chancellor of the Bacha Khan University Charsadda has been challenged in the Peshawar High Court.

A former employee of the university Shafiur Rahman on Monday filed a writ petition requesting the court to declare as illegal the appointment of Dr. Naqvi on grounds of unethical and immoral conduct.

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor, Chief Minister, registrar of the Bacha Khan University, academic committee, registrar of the Air University and Higher Education Commission have been made respondents in the petition.

The petitioner has alleged that Dr. Naqvi harassed a female professor in the Air University, adding he was punished by the Federal Ombudsman in the same harassment case.
