A sub-committee of Pakistan's Public Accounts Committee (PAC) was surprised to learn that some 106 research projects at various universities were still incomplete after over a decade despite funding by the Higher Education Commission (HEC).

The committee’s convener Alam Khan directed the commission to submit the record of these incomplete research projects with the audit officials.

The committee chairman also expressed anger on the absence of the HEC Chairman Tariq Banuri in the meeting. Khan asked the HEC Executive Director (ED) Lt Gen (retd) Muhammad Asghar about the chairman. The ED replied that Banuri was in his office.
