ISLAMABAD: The Skardu administration banned the highly controversial head of University of Baltistan (BoU) in the city on the occasion of President Arif Alvi arrival in Skardu to attend convocation of the university on Tuesday. Last year, a number of female UOB students accused Dr Naeem of sexual harassment, irking the local residents who staged protests for his ouster from the city. However, after a gap of nearly a year, Dr. Naeem recently regained the post using his connections, causing resentment among the locals once again. As per the audit reports of the university the controversial VC has also committed financial irregularities/corruption during his three years long tenure. The President Arif Alvi, after getting informed about the illegality in the selection process, has reportedly withheld the appointment of VC UoB to date.
