DERA ISMAIL KHAN: A local court on Saturday stayed the transfer of about 200 employees of Gomal University, Dera Ismail Khan, to the Agriculture University here.

On Friday, the court had also stayed the transfer of Gomal University’s assets to the latter. The next hearing into both the cases will be held on Sept 20.

The decision to transfer the employees of Gomal University to the agriculture varsity was initiated on the recommendations of the committees formed regarding transfer of assets of the former to the latter.

These committees were formed after the 109th syndicate meeting of the Gomal University had made a decision in that regard on Sept 11.

The acting vice-chancellor of Gomal University, who is also the vice chancellor of the Agriculture University, had issued notifications regarding the transfer of assets.
