Admission in morning shift difficult task
Islamabad: Admission in morning shift in model colleges being run under the Federal Directorate of Education has become unnerving for majority of the parents especially during the start of new academic session this year.

The decision to abolish evening shifts from the model colleges by the previous government was supposed to be implemented from the academic session in the year 2011 to bring uniformity in the provision of academic facilities to the students.

However, the relevant department of FDE could not implement the decision, ignoring the sufferings of the parents who are bound to educate their children in these colleges in the evening shifts, spoiling their routine life and engagements.

There is no willingness on the part of principals to implement the decision of abolishment of the evening shift.Sajid Rehman, a parent, said, "I have requested the FDE authorities for several times to change the shift of my child from evening to morning at one of the leading model colleges due to his weak eye sight."

"We got permission letter from FDE after submitting an application citing the required reasons and fulfilling the terms and conditions and submitted to the principal of the respective college but he rigidly refused to listen anything," he said.

Shaheen Raza, another parent, said the directorate has a policy that if the other child is studying at any of its college in morning shift then the shift can be changed from evening to morning while the shift can also be changed citing some medical reason. "We fulfilled all the terms and conditions and after day-long efforts got nothing."

She said once the parents admit their children in the model colleges and then they fell prey to the stubborn attitude and favouritism of the principals who never bother to redress their grievances.

The principals only accommodate the children in the morning shifts on favouritism basis, she observed.Such discriminations create psychological impact on the minds of the students who feel themselves deprived in front of students studying in morning shifts, she said.

The officials of FDE are of the view that it was the decision of the government to abolish evening shifts under its effort to materialise the dream of unified education system in the federal capital but no strategy has been devised so far to get it implemented.

There is no willingness on the part of authorities in the directorate or Ministry of Capital Administration and Development (CAD) to abolish evening shift or ensure a unified education system in Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT), the officials said.

The parents visit FDE and model colleges on daily basis for changing the shift of their children from evening to morning but the institutes lack capacity to adjust students in morning shifts, they added. The news

University professor booked in murder case
Islamabad: The police have registered a case against a professor of a private university and his accomplices for allegedly killing a student in the city four days back.

Malik Shahwaz Amir, an MBA student at the private university, was found dead in the wooded area of I-8/2 with a bullet injury to his temple on April 8.

The police at that time had said the student had committed suicide after his girlfriend left him.

However, the police could not find the weapon at the spot which made the incident suspicious. Besides, the deceased was a resident of F-10/4 and was found dead at I-8/2.

An autopsy conducted on the body showed that he had died after being shot from a close range, sources said.

Malik Amir Iqbal, the father of the deceased, in his complaint to the police alleged that a professor along with others was behind the murder of his son.

The father of the student said the professor along with others had abducted his son on April 8 when he was going to the university at 2:30pm.

They murdered my son and tried to show it as a suicide, he added.

He said the professor was 'jealous' of his son. He, however, was reluctant to talk about the motive behind the killing. "The professor used to threaten my son," he added.

In reply to a question, he expressed ignorance about the love affairs his son was involved in.

However, the police said the deceased was involved in a girl studding at the same university who later left him. Later, the professor got involved in the girl.

When the deceased tried to rebuild relation with the girl, the professor threatened him to keep away from the girl, the police said. Dawn
