SHC nullifies provincial govt’s decision to re-conduct medical entry tests


KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday annulled the decision of provincial government to re-conduct entry tests for medical colleges via National Testing Service (NTS) and directed to retain previous results.
Sindh government had directed the administration of the Dowd University Health Sciences (DUHS) to conduct the entry test again following the allegations of irregularities in the earlier examination.
Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah formed a five-member committee who recommended to cancel the results and re-conduct the test.
Subsequently, at least 150 students and their parents submitted a petition against Sindh government’s decision in SHC adopting stance that why they have to re-appear in the test when they have already passed it.
The court after hearing the arguments in the case announced the decision in favour of the students.
Delighted students while welcoming the verdict of the court distributed sweets.
The students said that they would work hard and would serve the country by becoming a doctor.
