Justice Mohd Yaqoob Mir of J&K High Court directed the Vice Chancellor of Jammu University to forward the thesis of the petitioners to all concerned authorities. The three scholars namely Skalzang Dorjey, Kouple Dev and Sunita Sharma who filed the petition are students of Prof Nirmal K Singh, Deputy Chief Minister of J&K and the University authorities in their tussle with Prof Nirmal Singh are harassing these students alleged by Adv Aseem Sawhney before the Court while making submissions.
Advocate Aseem Sawhney submitted that earlier also these scholars had approached the High where by university authorities were directed to allow the scholars of Prof. Nirmal Singh to continue their research under the supervision of Prof Nirmal Singh. Petitioners were aggrieved of impugned order dated 26/11/2015 passed by Jammu University disallowing the scholars to continue with the existing supervisor.
Further advocate Aseem Sawhney contended that it was out of question to change the supervisor as most of the petitioners had completed 80-90% of their research work and what was left behind was only the submission of the thesis. University authorities who remained negligent about implementing the impugned resolution of 7th Dec. 1987 at proper time, later when the 90% research was over, tried to change the supervisor at such a crucial stage without thinking a little bit about the research and career of three innocent scholars. What is more surprising is that earlier the same authorities allowed two scholars namely Chanderkanta and Neeraj Jandyal working under Prof. Nirmal Singh to submit their abstract as well as their thesis. But suddenly the university authorities came out of their hibernation and issued order for the change of internal examiner of the above two scholars and to allot a New Supervisor for the other three petitioners.
