KU needs Rs2 million to improve transport facilities
Karachi: Thousands of students belonging to the Karachi University on
Wednesday had to suffer immense hardship as the employees of KU transport
department stopped providing bus service to them in protest against beating of a
bus driver of the varsity.
As per details, some students of the zoology
department severely tortured KU bus driver, Nazir, who was a heart patient.
However, an employee of the zoology department, Hameed, was also allegedly
involved in beating the driver. Later, dozens of transport employees gathered at
the zoology department with wooden and iron rods to take revenge but Hameed and
his companions (students) escaped the scene. According to sources, the students
involved in the incident were members of a student organisation.
pertinent to mention here that KU is facing lack of transport facilities as only
27 point-buses are available at the campus to provide ferry over 26,000 students
of the University belonging to various parts of the City.
KU Campus Officer,
Dr Khalid Iraqi confirmed that some students badly
tortured the bus driver, Nazir, in collaboration with an employee of the
university. He said the victim was manhandled 20 days ago at Wireless Gate for
not stopping his bus there.
"On the complaint from Nazir, KU administration
has filed a case against unidentified persons. An old dispute between Nazir and
Hameed, a lab attendant of zoology department, was also a cause of this
incident. However, the injured driver was taken to the KU clinic for medical
treatment where his condition is out of danger", he said.
Dr Iraqi further
said the university was facing shortage of funds worth Rs 2 million required to
improve its transport system while about 50 per cent of students usually
travelled through KU point-buses without tickets. Meanwhile, KU Transport
Committee In-charge, Dr Zulqarnain Shadab, said it was not possible to provide
transport facility to over 24,000 students of the University who came from
various parts of the city.
"The University provides a limited transport
facility to its students. Schedule of point-buses, that provide pick and drop
facility to the students at highly subsidised fare, is announced at the
beginning of each semester," he was quoted as saying on the university's
website. The Nation

FUUAST students exhibit software projects
Karachi: The final year students of the Bachelors of Science (BS) in
Computer Science programme at Federal Urdu University of Science and Technology
(FUUAST) exhibited software that they created during the course of their studies
at the FUUAST Gulshan Campus on Wednesday.
The students completed 26
different projects. Among the more popular and novel ones were Mobile Stock
Watcher, Portable Security System, Education Forum, Automobile Tracking System
and Health Care Management System.
FUUAST Vice Chancellor Dr Muhammad
Qaiser, teachers and other visitors applauded the pioneering work of the first
batch of students of the computer science students programme. Dr Qaiser warmly
appreciated the endeavour of the students. "It is good to have students who are
vibrant and know their subject well to produce new programmes. Our university is
in a nascent stage, and the transfer from a college to the university is
creating some hiccups regarding our role as the highest seat of learning. The
students have given us reason to believe that we can do fairly well, and become
a much sought-after university in the country", he said.
Kashif Laeeq, a
lecturer in the department of Computer Science, who supervised work on most of
the projects, praised his students for achieving 'a unique feat by students of a
public sector university'. "It is really praiseworthy that that our students
have done so well despite being branded as back benchers, studying in Urdu and
not receiving any financial help from the government."

"We had to face load shedding and shortage of spare parts. Despite that, the
students completed their projects within six months", he said proudly. He
disclosed that some US companies had accepted some projects as useful, and
requested to use them on a commercial basis in exchange for a monthly fee of US

Mobile Stock Watcher, for instance, would enable users to view live updates from
the stock market. The users will also be able to add, delete and update their
portfolio categories and symbols, and share these with their friends at any
Muhammad Alamgir, one of the three students who prepared 'Portable
Security System', said: "It detects unauthorised motion in a room by an
infrared sensor. It has a knock sensor, and can provide alarm alerts where
security is inadequate."
Education Forum is yet another project created
by the students, and has the potential to have information about all educational
institutions. It would also have a career map for pre-engineering, pre-medical
and computer science students.
Automobile Tracking System will provide
security to vehicles, and will locate stolen vehicles. The invention will also
help in navigating drivers to non familiar localities. The system will notify
drivers if their vehicle nears a restricted area. The project was completed by
Abdus Samad Ali Khan, Muhammad Anas Siddiqui and Muhammad Faisal Siddiqui under
the supervision of their teacher Farhan Shafiq. The News
