Gilgit (APP): The Chief Court of Gilgit Baltistan reinstated services of 183 teachers on Friday, who were dismissed a month before by the higher authorities of Education Department. Court Sources said that on March 14 senior authorities dismissed 183 teachers declaring their appointment illegal and without fulfillment of laid down procedure. The terminated teachers filed a writ petition in the Chief Court seeking relief.
Meanwhile on March 23 the Chief Secretary Sajjad Salim Hottiana withdrew the orders of Secretary Education and said rules for termination of services were not adopted. The Chief Court while disposing off the petition said that since the Chief Secretary has withdrawn notification of termination which was issued by Secretary Education, there is no justification to hear this petition.
