IJT patronising criminals at PU
IJT patronising criminals: PU
Lahore, March 17: Punjab University spokesman has said that IJT is patronising the
criminals and the involvement of IJT activist Yasir Abbasi in car theft
incidents is live proof of this fact.
He said an FIR No 27/11 under section
381/A, 406 T.P had been registered with Muslim Town police station. Yasir Abbasi
named some of his friends in such incidents, over which IJT took out a protest
and pressurised police to avoid arrests of accomplices.
Regarding lack of
hostels and increase in students, the spokesman said some former and present
student members of IJT had illegally occupied rooms of the hostels which caused
problems. The varsity administration, from time to time, dispossessed illegally
occupied rooms such as rooms of hostel No 1 and Khalid Bin Waleed Hall had been
vacated from the custody of IJT.
The spokesman said those students who had
been expelled were due to their involvement in criminal activities and after
continuous warnings. Some of them, including Usman Ashraf, were forgiven on
assurance of not involving in such activities, but they again participated in
illegal activities. The spokesman said IJT should remember that their elders
made an alliance with other group to save the skin of their companions against
which they were demanding action.
The spokesman said the varsity
administration had already announced the holding of book fair. The IJT's
interest was only that it had been minting money from the publishers. "The IJT
activists, in the press conference, have urged the students to participate in
activity and not attend classes, which is clear proof of damaging peaceful
academic environment of the varsity", he added.
