FIA raids Faisalabad private schools after SC order
FAISALABAD (92 News) – The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) raided at private schools of Faisalabad on Thursday night.
As per reports, the raids were carried out after the Supreme Court order at three branches including central branch of private schools.
The FIA teams seized all the documents present at the schools’ offices during the raid.
It was reported that the raids were conducted at those schools which were charging excessive fees from their students. The raids were ordered by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar.
It was also reported that the audit of record would reveal the information of receiving fees of previous five years by the schools.
A day earlier, the top court ordered all private schools across Pakistan to cut their monthly fee by 20 per cent.
The report of auditor general relating to the private schools submitted in the court. The report revealed a total of Rs512m was spent on employees’ salaries in one year, while Rs5.2 billion was spent in five years, adding that various facilities were also provided.
During the hearing, the chief justice asked form the woman director of private schools, “Are you taking Rs8.5 million salary?” The chief justice said, “You should have fear of God.” “If a person starts to torn the notes of rupees regularly, he cannot torn the notes amounting Rs8.5 million within a month,” the top judge remarked.
Justice Nisar also inquired that have these schools bought uranium mines or gold mines? He observed that the private school owners only showed such a huge amount of salaries’ payment in the documents for justifying the deficit.
CJ Nisar said that in such a way the owners have made more than 150 schools. The private schools lawyer said that the private schools profit is 6 per cent and ready to cut 8 per cent fees. To reply, Justice Ijazul Ahsan remarked that the audit report is being changed to hide the real profit.
