Online classes: BHC orders establishment of committee to evolve mechanism
The court has appointed additional secretary home as a head of the committee: Attaullah Langove
The Balochistan High Court (BHC) on Tuesday ordered the formation of a committee to evolve mechanisms with regard to online classes in educational institutions of the province. The divisional bench of the BHC comprising chief justice, Mr. Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail and Justice Nazeer Ahmed Langove passed this order on a petition filed against online classes in the province.
The Baloch Students Organization (BSO) has challenged the online classes through its counsels Kamran Murtaza Advocate, Attaullah Langove Advocate and others.
During the hearing, the bench appointed additional home secretary Balochistan as the head of the committee to discuss ways and means to evolve a mechanism regarding the online classes.
Vice-chancellors of various universities in Balochistan also appeared before the court.
Students have challenged the online classes in the province because of the non-availability of internet facility and poverty. Students had also staged protest demonstrations outside Balochistan Assembly and Quetta Press Club to mount pressure on the government to halt the online classes. The higher education commission had announced online classes across the country in the aftermath of the novel coronavirus in the county.
