F.P. Report

LAHORE: The Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday removed the vice chancellor of Punjab University Dr Zakria Zakar from his post.

The CJP issued the order while taking suo motu notice of the construction of grid station on university land.

The court while expressing stern resentment over the matter questioned, “Who are you to sell the university’s land to the government? You people are only appointed to bow your heads before the government.”

Senior advocate Khalid Ranjhs requested the court to review the decision to suspend the VC.

The CJP remarked, “I think I should tender my resignation and submit it in the court now.”
