CS removes school head for beating student
LAHORE: Punjab Chief Secretary Kamran Rasool has ordered the compulsory retirement of Mazhar Ali Kazmi, former senior headmaster of Government Malik High School Baghbanpura, for subjecting a student to corporal punishment. The chief secretary said that Kazmi violated the Education Department's restriction on corporal punishment to beat Amir Saleem, a class-8 student, and collected Rs 1,465 in illegal fines.
Mazhar Ali Kazmi had been denied annual increments and transferred from the headmaster's post upon being found guilty, and the fined amount was recovered from him. When a teacher filed a representation with the chief secretary to challenge the punishment, he increased the penalty to compulsory retirement from service under the Removal from Service Ordinance, 2000.
