After facing expulsion from Institute of Business Administration (IBA) Karachi, an undergraduate student named Mohammad Gibrail is now facing trauma and has visited doctors several times, the student revealed on Thursday.
Talking to Dialogue Pakistan, Gibrail said that he was called by the IBA administration on Wednesday and handed over a letter which stated that he had been expelled mainly for defaming and maligning the institute with some other charges.
After that he was not allowed to enter the campus and also his hostel. “I was barred like I was the part of a terrorist threat [….] the security guards told me to send someone else in order to take my belongings back,” Gibrail continued.
Earlier on Wednesday, it was reported that the student had been expelled for taking to social media and reporting the incident of an alleged harassment involving a faculty.
According to the IBA: “The student was given multiple occasions to reconsider his actions and was counselled numerous times to reassess his actions. Having failed to do that, the Disciplinary Committee has decided to expel the student as the IBA has zero tolerance policy towards the violation of its rules and regulations.”
However. the IBA stated in the letter that the expelled student might file a decision review request in case of any reservation against the decision.
Hailing from Lakki Marwat, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gibrail got his admission in IBA on scholarship.
