Shamim Saifullah Khan, former principal of Aitchison College passed away in Peshawar at 11 am on Sunday (today).
As per family announcement, Shamim’s funeral prayers will be offered at 6:30pm at his ancestral home Saadullah Khan Kallay.
He remained College principal from 1994 to 2008 and rejoined the College in 2013.
But in 2014, the then Aitchison College Principal Shamim Saifullah Khan had preferred to resign from his office than allowing 70 teachers and a number of other employees he had sacked in June 2013 to rejoin the college. Khan submitted his resignation to the Governor/BoG Chairman who accepted it.
Mr Khan had terminated the services of 70 senior teachers and several employees – allegedly without assigning any reason or following any procedure. The aggrieved staff had approached the Lahore High Court which directed the BoG in January this year to resolve their grievances.
