PMAS-AAUR student death Mystery solved

Mystery solved: Classmate, not cellphone snatchers, killed PMAS-AAUR student
Rawalpindi, July 24: Police on Thursday arrested a Pir Mehr Ali Shah-Arid Agriculture University, Rawalpindi (PMAS-AAUR), student for killing his classmate and seized a 12-bore repeater used for the murder.

The arrested student's partner in crime was also taken into custody. Initially, it was reported that some armed men killed the student on resisting a mobile phone snatching bid.

City Police Officer (CPO), Rawalpindi, Rao Iqbal told reporters that Umair Aftab of Khayaban-e-Sir Syed with the help of his friend Usman gunned down Shahzad in Nawaz Sharif Park, Shamsabad, on July 17 night. He said the two had confessed to the murder.

He said Umair was annoyed with Shahzad for trying to make friends with a female classmate.

The CPO said Umair along with Usman persuaded Shahzad into meeting them in Nawaz Sharif Park where the former shot him dead at nighttime and fled.

He said police hunted down the alleged killers in light of the slain student's cellphone call record and information gathered from his colleagues.

Iqbal said soon after the student's murder, he had directed Superintendent of Police (SP), Rawal Town, Ziarat Kiani, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), New Town Circle, Yousuf Ali and Station House Officer (SHO) of New Town Police Station Ijaz Hussain to ensure early arrest of the killer(s).

He praised the police officials in question for arresting the culpable people within 72 hours of the murder.

The CPO announced cash prizes and certificates for police officers, who successfully investigated the killing.

Students protest colleagues' arrest
Rawalpindi: The students of Pir Mehr Ali Shah-Arid Agricultural University, Rawalpindi, (PMAS-AAUR) on Thursday staged a demonstration to protest the detention of their colleagues by the police in connection with the murder of Muhammad Shahzad, a university student. The protesters came out and blocked Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Road (BBSH) for around an hour, causing traffic suspension. Holding placards in their hands, they chanted slogans against the city police and the university administration.

A girl student said that the police in collaboration with the university administration arrested innocent students and tortured them without any rhyme or reason. "I find no words to condemn the humiliation of university students at the hands of police," remarked another protesting student of the university, who had seen his colleagues being beaten, dragged and bundled into the police vans. The student leaders said that to stage protests and hold rallies was their democratic right and no one could snatch it from them. They also requested the Chairman of the National Assembly Standing Committee on Education Abid Sher Ali to conduct an inquiry into what he alleged the malpractices of the university administration. They also demanded an early release of all their innocent colleagues.
