PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Member National Assembly (MNA) Murad Saeed’s BS (Hons) results have been held back by the University of Peshawar, according to a university spokesman.

Murad Saeed, who was elected as MNA from Swat, was a student of BS (Hons) at the university’s Environmental Sciences department from 2005 to 2009.

But according to the varsity administration, Murad Saeed had not passed his final examination. Sources said Mr. Saeed then appeared in exams for two subjects on March 2, 2015, after the department of Environmental Sciences made especial arrangements for him.

University of Peshawar spokesman Akhtar Amin, while talking to Dawn, said vice chancellor Dr. Rasool Jan took notice of the incident and ordered that Murad Saeed’s results be held back. The vice chancellor has also formed an inquiry committee to investigate the matter.

“The committee will investigate whether the department conducted the examination under established rules and regulation and whether these exams were held in a transparent manner,” said the university spokesperson.

The inquiry committee will be headed by the dean of the Numerical and Physical Sciences department, Dr. Gulzar Khan, and will submit its report to the vice chancellor.
