Girl with Daesh background expelled from Sindh University
KARACHI: University of Sindh has annulled the admission of Noreen Leghari who had gone missing in February 2017 and joined global terrorist outfit Daesh, The News reported.
Leghari, a resident of Hussainabad, was a second year medical student at Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences (LUMHS) when she went missing on February 10, 2017 from her native.
Two months later, Leghari was recovered from Lahore on April 17 in an operation of law enforcing agencies in which her accomplice Ali was killed. She confessed her involvement in terrorist activities and claimed no one had abducted her but she escaped and joined the organization at her will.
LUMHS cancelled her admission on her statement at the time of recovery. She then got admission in English Department of University of Sindh in November 2018 but was removed from enrollment when the varsity got aware of her previous affiliations.
Her father Dr Abdul Jabbar Leghari is working at the University as a professor in Dr MA Kazi Institute of Chemistry.
Leghari and her father have filed a joint constitutional petition in the Sindh High Court against the varsity, pleading that according to article K-25 of Constitution, the University management could not deny her right of education.
Fateh Burfat, the vice chancellor of the University of Sindh, told media that the LUMHS management is probing the cancellation of her admission and will come to a decision after getting verification from law enforcement agencies.
According to the varsity’s spokesman, Leghari concealed facts about cancellation of her previous admission while applying at Sindh University.
