HC directs Govt to constitute a panel to look into degrees issued by unrecognized study centers

The court asked a senior counsel to give a simple line for translation from English into Urdu and vice-versa which the teacher failed to do. The court then asked him to write an essay on cow in Urdu or English which he is required to teach at the primary and middle level which he failed to write and sought the permission to write essay outside the court room but he failed. Then he said that he is good in Mathematics and can solve problems. The court asked another counsel to frame some questions of standard IV which he failed to solve.
The Court observed that what would be the fate of the students in the hands of such teachers and directed the government to constitute a panel which would look into the degrees issued by such unrecognised institutes.
