PU Declares 6 Degrees Bogus
Punjab University declared the degrees of six assembly members as bogus. The university has sent the details to the Higher Education Commission for confirmation.
Of 314 degrees sent for verification, the Punjab University has confirmed 217 degrees as authentic on Tuesday.
According to sources, the university could not verify the remaining degrees for lack of incomplete credentials submitted by the parliamentarians. The Higher Education Commission has directed all universities to verify degrees of politicians. HEC has so far received feedback on 234 degrees of members of parliaments after verification from 22 universities. The Commission has said that 36 of the degrees issued by foreign universities are pending verification reports. So far 22 of the degrees have been confirmed bogus.
