The Sindh High Court (SHC) suspended the education department’s notification regarding the suspension of a large number of teaching and non-teaching staff from Nausheroferoz district.

The interim order came on the petition of many staff members of District Nausheroferoze , who assailed the notification regarding their suspension from jobs by the Secretary Education in the month of November 2014.

It was submitted by us Petitioner’s counsel ( Mr. Irfan Mir Halepota ) that  the petitioners were appointed in the education department from 1989 to 2010 and they were performing their duties in different posts.

The counsel submitted that the Education Department issued a notification whereby the services of a large number of teaching and non-teaching staff, including the petitioners, from several districts of the province were suspended without assigning any reasons and they were ordered to report to the department with immediate effect without any justification or allegation against them.

He submitted that neither any inquiry was conducted nor any opportunity was provided to the petitioners to explain the allegations. He submitted that the notification was based on mala fide intention, and prayed the court to set aside the impugned notification.

After the preliminary hearing, the division bench issued notices to the Sindh advocate general and secretary education among others, calling their comments.
