There is no mention in the letter of removing Registrar Dr. Shah Masood Yousafzai and reassigning him back to his own department.
Moreover, Riaz Mohammad was not appointed as registrar in the letter, which is an illegal act in itself and is tantamount to throwing dust in the eyes of the governor who is the chancellor of the university.
