PESHAWAR, 27 September: Three-month salary has been paid to 270 employees of technical institutions affiliated with the Workers Welfare Board (WWB) under the orders of the Peshawar High Court (PHC).

The government lawyer told the court during hearing of a petition filed by Tanzeelur Rehman on Tuesday that the provincial government has paid three-month salary to the employees and 10-month salary will be paid within 10 days. He said it when the petitioner told the court earlier that the WWB employees have not received salaries for the last three years due to which they are facing countless difficulties.

The court on the reply of the government lawyer adjourned the hearing.
