PESHAWAR, 22 December: The Peshawar High Court has stopped the shifting of Women Degree College from Gujrat village council of Mardan to Bakhshali area and sought reply in this regard from the chief secretary, Higher Education Commission (HEC) and the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government.

The petitioner, Mujahid Ali said the provincial government had initially approved this women college for Gujrat village council and PC-1 of the project was also approved. He said the college project is being shifted to Bakhshali now on the influence of some government officials, which is illegal and unconstitutional.

The petitioner said the shifting of the college from Gujrat area will be injustice with the local population.
