SHC orders govt to notify appointee as chair of Larkana board

KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Saturday ordered the Sindh government to issue an appointment letter for the office of the Larkana Board of Secondary and Intermediate Education chairman.

Naseem Ahmed Memon petitioned the court against the non-issuance of his appointment letter as the chairman of the board. “I had tendered resignation from Cadet College Karampur after receiving the offer letter for the job,” the petitioner said in his plea.

“Two secret agencies issued my clearance report, while objection made in a special report submitted to the chief minister of Sindh,” according to the petition.

“When two agencies have given clearance to the petitioner, how the appointment could be halted over an unsigned special report,” the bench questioned.

“A fresh report could be summoned from the Intelligence Bureau [IB] if the court permits,” an additional chief secretary, who was representing the government, said.

The bench rejected the plea of the additional chief secretary and ordered the government to issue notification for the appointment of the petitioner on the job.
