Kashmiri scholar ‘harassed’ at Islamabad varsity Accused of spying for India

SRINAGAR- A Kashmiri family Wednesday alleged that their scholar son who had gone to pursue higher education to Pakistan under SAARC exchange programme had faced ‘humiliation’ at the hands of his guide there, reported Kashmir Watch.
Muhammad Yousuf Khan from Soibugh area of Occupied Kashmir’s Budgam district told Srinagar-based news gathering agency CNS that his son Ishrat Naveed faced humiliation at the hands of his supervisor Assistant Professor Dr Tariq Mehmood of Quaid-i-Azam University Islamabad.
“My son left the Valley a few years back to pursue his cherished dream of completing PhD in Bio-Technology. He chose prestigious Qaud-i-Azam University in Islamabad and managed to get admission under the SAARC exchange agreement,” Khan said adding his son was tortured and harassed there.
The brother of the scholar Nazir Ahmed Khan told CNS that Ishrat informed the family that his guide and supervisor accused him of being Indian spy with espionage mission to Pakistan. He said Ishrat informed the family that his guide and supervisor took all the research samples in his custody in his absence.
“How can my brother be an Indian spy. He had gone there to complete his degree. This is ridiculous and the moment we came to know about facts, all of us felt dejected and troubled,” Khan told CNS.
His brother said according to Ishrat, the reason behind worst humiliation is to grab money (9.5 million) and research articles. “He has lodged a complaint against his supervisor with the University authorities and Higher Education Commission for justice. However, they have not taken any action till date,” Nazir Ahmed said.
