The academic event was attended by a large number of students and alumni, members of academic, senate and syndicate, deans of faculties and directors and chairpersons of the institutes and departments.

Notice issued to SPSC in marks tampering case
Karachi: The Sindh High Court issued the provincial public service commission a notice on Thursday in a petition alleging marks tampering by it.

Petitioner Muhammad Saleem Shaikh submitted through Advocate Muhammad Nawaz Shaikh that he applied for a post advertised by the Sindh Public Service Commission from urban quota in 2003 and appeared in a written test and in a viva voce conducted by it in 2004. The commission selected 77 candidates for the posts of section officer, deputy district officer (revenue), assistant director (labour) and assistant co-operatives registrar in grade 17, assistant food controllers and labour officers in grade 16.

The list of successful candidates did not mention the marks obtained by them.

Though the fee paid by him and other candidates included charges for marks certificates, the commission did not send them any certificates. He applied for a certificate on payment of Rs250, according to which he secured 525 out of 900 marks in the written test and 201 out of 250 in the viva voce. He claimed that having received 726 out of 1150 marks, he was entitled to a job.

However, the petitioner claimed, he came to know of serious irregularities that adversely affected his selection prospects. The marks of one of the candidates in the subject of Sindhi literature, for instance, were revised upwards from 91 to 143 out of 150 marks.

Among the selected candidates were sons of the then SPSC chief, Muhammad Hassan Bhutto, services and general administration department secretary Hashim Leghari and revenue secretary Abdul Ghaffar Soomro; daughter of a special banking judge; and brother of additional chief secretary Ghulam Sarwar Khero.

A division bench comprising Justices Khilji Arif Hussain and Ghulam Dastgir A. Shahani issued the commission a notice for January 18, 2009.

The bench, meanwhile, disposed of a contempt plea moved by Maula Bux Khatan, who said the court order for consideration of his case for promotion to grade 21 had not been complied with by the provincial government.

Assistant advocate-general Adnan Karim Memon produced a notification saying that the petitioner had been promoted to the post of provincial secretary in grade 21 along with Rasool Bux Phulphuto. Dawn

Law students' plight
Karachi: I am a law student at the Government Islamia Law College. I sat for the LLM (previous) exams held by the University of Karachi. The university has recently announced the results in which I, like most candidates from the college, was declared failed in the paper of Comparative Studies of World Constitutions by a narrow margin of two to five marks. Failing so many students in one particular paper and that too by such a narrow margin is going to create immense hardships.

It is really sad that on the one hand the daughter of the chief justice is awarded marks in a secondary board exam unduly while on the other, so many students are declared failed by a narrow margin. Samiullah from Karachi - The News
