PSA house burnt over IJT student's death

KARACHI, Aug 17: Unidentified men burnt a Punjabi Student Association (PSA) house located on the premises of Jinnah hospital Thursday. SHO Saddar Naeem Khan said that some students, from the IJT (Islamia Jamiat Tulaba), came to Jinnah hospital and burnt the house. The SHO said that they also burnt a motorcycle. When the police got to the scene they had already escaped and no one was hurt.

Meanwhile, the government has a week to arrest the murderers of the final-year medical student, and if this does not happen, other students will be compelled to do it themselves, said an Islami Jamiat Tulaba (IJT) spokesman in a demonstration Thursday.

One of the IJT activists, 24-year-old Hafiz Abdur Rehman, was killed at JPMC a day earlier as tensions escalated between two student groups on Sindh Medical College campus. Hundreds of students participated in the demonstration that was held outside the Karachi press club.

The Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal has also demanded arrests and that outsiders be forced to leave the campus hostels.

The funeral prayers for Rehman were offered in Multan and were attended by the IJT's Abdur Rasheed and Sohaib Siddiqui. An IJT delegation met JPMC Director Dr Rashid Jooma and Colonel Javaid from the Pakistan Rangers to inform them of the details of the incident. Both officials assured them that the culprits would be found.

They added that the registration of the guilty students would be cancelled. They also told the delegation that the old doctors hostel and BMFI would be vacated and Punjab House would be demolished, the IJT claimed.

Wednesday's clash between two student organizations at the Sindh Medical College (SMC) in which a final year medical student was killed and several others were injured, has gripped JPMC with tension. The hospital's administration was forced to shut down the Outdoor Patients Department (OPD) as a result of which more than 3,000 patients from all over the country suffered.

"One of the student organizations requested the administration to shut down the OPD in order to avoid any unpleasant event," a JPMC public relations officer said. Most of the patients come from remote districts in Sindh. Daily times
