Justice MK Hanjura disposed off the writ petition filed by one Dr Shafiqa Bano seeking that the PSC be directed to advertise the post of lecturer in discipline of Gynaecology and Obstetrics for Schedule Tribe category.
“…the petition is disposed of with a direction that the respondents shall advertise the post of the Lecturer in the discipline of Gynaecology and Obstetrics under the Schedule Tribe Category”, Justice Hanjura directed.

Court said, the petitioner, as it appears has completely misunderstood and misconstrued the contents of the order passed by Division Bench which, Court said, does not in any way come to the aid and assistance of the petitioner.
“Although the order stated that the counsel for the petitioner wants that the respondents be expressly directed to appoint the petitioner under the ST category, yet the Court has held that since no such post is available under the ST category, therefore, no such direction can be issued”, court mentioned.
