DJ College teachers 'manhandled'
Karachi: The invigilation staff at DJ Government Science College on
Tuesday boycotted Tuesday's second-shift paper of the higher secondary school
certificate annual examination after some teachers of the college were
manhandled by supporters of a student organisation.
When DJ Science
College principal Prof Hakeem Baig Chughtai was contacted to find out
his version of the event, he said that though the morning shift paper was
conducted peacefully at the college, the unpleasant incident, which occurred
after the morning shift paper was over, forced the teachers of the college to
boycott the evening shift's paper.
He said the incident did not have any
link with the examination, but it took place when some 20 outsiders belonging to
a student organisation came to the college and objected to the seating
arrangements of male and female students of the bachelor of computer science
class at the college.
However, when some teachers of the college
reminded them that they had no right to dictate their terms about the seating
arrangements, the students got angry and manhandled some teachers of the
college, causing them minor injuries.
The incident, he said, sparked a
wave of anger among teachers of the college and, as such, they decided to
boycott the paper which was to be conducted at the college in the second shift.
Prof Chughtai said an FIR had been lodged against the students for
manhandling the teachers of the college at the Preedy Street police station and
two of the students had already been arrested by the police.
Paper rescheduled for June 1
Board of Intermediate Education Karachi chairman Prof Anwar
Ahmed Zai said that Tuesday's second shift paper (Accounting Paper-II),
which could not be held at D. J. Science College examination centre due to the
boycott by teachers, would now be held on June 1 at the same time and place.
