Adil Zaman Kasi, the dean of the Department of Political Science at Balochistan University, heaped praise on the graduate for his commitment to education.
“Haibatullah Halimi, despite being aged, remained determined to pursue his goal. We did not expect him to complete his PhD, but he persevered till the end and succeeded in his mission," Kasi said.
He told Dawn.com that Halimi was the oldest student of the political science department, and served as a role model for other students at the university.
Halimi's research is about traditional and modern policing in Balochistan.
