Bannu University Science and Technology (BUST) vice chancellor has lost his job after his dancing video went viral on social media.
The BUST Vice Chancellor (VC) Dr Professor Sultan Mehmood was suspended by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Governor Shah Farman on Thursday when his dancing video got viral on social media.
Earlier on Wednesday, a video purportedly of the professor dancing along with a female inside a room was widely shared on social media platforms and WhatsApp groups.
The students at the university held a protest demonstration at the campus to demand removal of VC Sultan Mehmood. The protest was arranged by the Voice of Students Society and it was attended by a large number of students. The students boycotted classes and stopped some of the classes that were in progress.
The protesters demanded his immediate resignation and appointment of a new head of the university, saying that otherwise they would not allow the institution to run.
A statement issued from the Governor’s House said that KP Governor Shah Farman replaced the vice-chancellor, Dr Syed Abid Ali Shah, and assigned his responsibilities to the pro vice-chancellor, Sultan Mahmood.
It said that the governor also formed a three-member committee to probe the matter. The committee will present its report to the governor within 10 working days.
