ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday snubbed National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Director General Lahore Saleem Shehzad over handcuffing aged faculty members of Punjab University (PU).
The CJ resumed hearing of the suo motu case here in Supreme Court (SC) Lahore registry. During the proceedings Justice Nisar expressed exasperation over the hapless incident and inquired, “Under which law you mortified the teachers? Relinquish from the post if you are unable to perform your tasks efficaciously”.
To this, the DG NAB cited security reasons for handcuffing former vice-chancellor Mujahid Kamran.
Shehbaz also informed court that he had sought forgiveness from Mujahid Kamran and other faculty members personally.
Later, the DG NAB burst into tears and submitted unconditional apology in the top court.
However, the CJ remarked: “Now that it has come to you, you are crying. What is your progress apart from ridiculing people”? remarked CJP.
The top judge made it clear that the apex court would not tolerate mortification of teachers.
NAB on Thursday had arrested former vice-chancellor of Punjab University Mujahid Kamran over alleged administration and financial irregularities.—NNI
