Furthermore, in the decision, SC demanded details of eligibility of the law colleges. Court directed that the relevant documents regarding the eligibility be presented. Apart from these documents Mian Saqib further ordered to present the documents of ongoing cases in Lahore High Court.

This isn’t the first time that Supreme Court has taken action against educational institutions. The Court recently banned private medical colleges from taking in any new admissions.

      2 km away from Supreme Court of Pakistan in a huge building of Sir Syed Memorial Building (rent was Rs.25,000 once, gifted by Dr. Atta-ur Rehman) is……….

      Center for Advanced Studies in Engineering (CASE) runs under so called “Engineering Education Trust” , it was run by serving military officers of NUST and EME. Army officers in large numbers studies (even did part time jobs) in this institute and this is still going on.

      These serving military officers run this business (without taxes) without any disciplinary action against them due to their links with military establishment.

      This institute somehow got a good image in educational sector but majority knew nothing about the inside corruption. Grading which in no way to be done by CASE faculty was unofficially done with unwritten consent of UAE Taxila. Bureaucrats (Civil and Military) with worst educational performance and being absent from classes/exams/tests got highest grades possible. Plagiarism promoted among and an acceptable practice for these officers studying in this institute running under a so called trust.
