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.
