Widow awaits payment of dues by education deptt

Ms Seema Rauf, widow of the late Shahid Najmi, a junior clerk of Sindh Education and Literacy Department, who lost his life in an accident last year, still awaits for gratuity, benevolent fund, accident claim, and group insurance etc.

Shahid Najmi died of head injuries at COD while going to duty on a bike on March 2, 2007.

His widow alleges that her husband, who served the department for 19 years, was mentally tortured by the superiors and was suspended in June 2004 on false charges. According to her, Shahid Najmi met accident due to mental agony.

She had submitted applications to the President, prime minister and other authorities, who had referred the matter to the authorities concerned. On January 5, 2008, former Secretary Education Dr Muhammad Ali had appointed Director General Colleges as Inquiry Officer with instructions to probe the unauthorised suspension of the employee, which led to his death, and submit findings within three weeks but all in vain.

The widow, awaiting the arrears as her legal right, has appealed to the higher authorities to provide her.
