AMU news today: Allahabad High Court justifies AMU VC’s appointment
ALIGARH: The Allahabad High Court has vindicated the appointment of Lt. Gen. Zameer Uddin Shah as the Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University. The decision, which is seen as a positive development preceding the 198th birth anniversary of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan on October 17, was made by a division bench of Justice Dilip Gupta and Justice V.K. Mishra today.
Dismissing the writ petition filed by a former Honorary Secretary of AMU Studentsâ€™ Union, Abrar Ahmad, who challenged Lt. Gen. Zameer Uddin Shahâ€™s appointment as the Vice Chancellor of AMU in contravention of the UGCâ€™s regulation of 2010, the High Court upheld Lt. Gen. Shahâ€™s appointment legal as the â€œAMU had not adopted the UGC regulation at the time of his appointmentâ€.
