Sindh University Cancels Daesh-Linked Student’s Admission On Grounds That She Could Be A Security Risk
Sindh University has canceled the admission of Daesh-linked Pakistani student Noreen Leghari on grounds that she might be a security risk to other students.
Leghari, a second-year MBBS student of the Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences (LUMHS) had joined proscribed Daesh in 2017. Later, she was arrested during a Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) raid in Lahore and sent for rehabilitation.
Leghari went missing on February 6, 2017, and her father, Dr. Jabbar Leghari, a SU teacher, had asked for her recovery. It was later revealed that she had joined the banned Daesh outfit.
She underwent rehabilitation under the supervision of the law-enforcement agencies. Her family did not share many details after she reunited with them. She resumed her studies at LUMHS until her admission was revoked in March 2019.
The medical college registrar said that Leghari had filed an application in February requesting cancellation of her admission, which was accepted on March 1. She then applied for admission in the English department at the university and was provisionally allowed. She also attended several classes before her identity was confirmed.
The SU vice-chancellor stated that Naureen’s name did not appear in the final list of admission because she had not submitted certain documents. “Then there was concealment of facts as well; she did not disclose that she was a student of LUMHS,” the VC said.
