PESHAWAR: Peshawar High Court issued a stay order against the dismissal of Bank of Khyber managing director on Tuesday. The bench, comprising judges Rooh-ul-Amin Khan and Younis Thaheem, also summoned a reply from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government over the matter. Managing Director BoK Shams-ul-Qayyum submitted a petition to the court following his dismissal. He stated that his dismissal was illegal and against the Constitution. On September 7, the provincial finance department had issued a notice to the Shams-ul-Qayyum informing him of his termination for misconduct. Qayyum violated point seven of his contract by publishing advertisements and levelled baseless allegations against the provincial finance minister.
