    Extract:

    "March 23, President Mamnoon Hussain conferred Tamgha-i-Imtiaz on Dr Masroor Ikram, an HEC declared blacklisted academic, who teaches at the Pakistan Institute of Engineering and Applied Sciences (PIEAS).

    Dr Ikram was among the four professors of PIEAS who were found guilty of plagiarism by the HEC.

    All the four were declared as the “blacklisted scholars” by the HEC in January this year for at least two years. However, the authorities concerned concealed the fact from the president who conferred the award on the academic on the Pakistan Day."
