Dr Ashfaq Zarri resigns as Registrar BGSBU

SRINAGAR: Joint Registrar Kashmir University, Dr Ashfaq Zarri, who had been appointed Registrar Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University (BGSBU) Rajouri two years ago on deputation, has resigned from the post citing “personal reasons” even as varsity insiders said that Zarri’s “differences” with the incumbent Vice Chancellor at the BGSBU can be a reason.
As per an order issued by Deputy Registrar BGSBU on Wednesday, Dr Zarri, who joined as the varsity’s Registrar in September 2018 and whose term was extended in August the following year, has been relieved from the university with “immediate effect with directions to report to his parent university” that is Kashmir University.
A separate order issued by the BGSBU administration assigned the additional charge of the Registrar’s post to the Controller of Examinations at the varsity.
Zarri has also served as Director south campus of the Kashmir University besides being Joint Registrar at the institution.
Although the Wednesday’s order by the BGSBU administration read that Zarri had been relieved from the varsity “on his own request citing personal reasons”, insiders at the varsity attributed the development to the “rough equation” between Zarri, a local from Rajouri and the incumbent VC since the former joined as Registrar.
Insiders further said that the varsity administration had recently proposed a recruitment process to be initiated amid the prevailing pandemic, which Zarri is said to have objected to.
However, when asked for his comment over the issue , Zarri cited “personal reasons” for his decision.
