Exclamation Ogra chairmanís degree found fake

ISLAMABAD: An investigation by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) has revealed that the masterís degree of Chairman Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra), Tauqir Sadiq, is fake and the educational institution referred in the degree does not exist either in the United States or United Kingdom.
Director HEC told The News on Saturday that Islamabad High Court directed the Commission to verify the existence of an institution by the name of American University of London. After investigation, it was revealed that no such institution existed either in the US or UK.
When contacted, Sadiq said his masterís degree had nothing to do with his current appointment since the qualification for the slot of chairman, as given in Section 3 of the OGRA Ordinance, is an LLB degree and 20 years of experience. ďI did my LLB in 1987 and have 22 years of experience so I am eligible for the post of OGRA chairman even without this masterís degree,Ē Sadiq told The News. ďSome corrupt elements in the institution who want to avoid disciplinary action are trying to put pressure on me.Ē
He said the name of the university from where he got his masterís degree is American University in London instead of American University of London as mentioned in his documents. He also says this university is affiliated with Quaid-i-Azam Law College.
The HEC says that when asked to investigate the case, it wasnít in its knowledge if the purpose was to verify the degree itself. ďIslamabad High Court only directed us to verify the authenticity of the institution, not the degree,Ē said the HEC official. ďSo irrespective of what the purpose of the query was, we only investigated whether the institution was operating anywhere in the US or UK.Ē
Tauqir Sadiq is the brother-in-law of PPP secretary-general, Jehangir Badar, and was also employed in the Wah Ordnance Factories. The authenticity of his degree was earlier challenged in the high court, whereupon the Islamabad High Court ordered an investigation.
