No Rangers on permanent basis at KU | UET award

KUTS expresses reservations
Karachi, April 17, 2008: The Karachi University Teachers Society (KUTS) has said that retaining the Rangers at the KU on a permanent basis was not desirable.

It suggested improvisation and the implementation of an alternative security system that could be used as a deterrent in case any students' clash occurs at the campus.

The idea was floated at a meeting of the KUTS held on Wednesday under the chair of KUTS President Dr Aqeel Ahmed.

Vice President KUTS Dr Shakeel Farooqui and Secretary Dr Abid Hasnain and all office bearers of the KUTS attended the meeting.

The meeting was of the opinion that the university should acquire the services of some security agencies in the initial stages, while preparing and grooming its own system of security. The meeting said that it should be kept in mind that the university is a place of educated people - both teachers and students - and the security staff must understand that.

The KUTS also expressed its surprise over the non-implementation of the decisions that were made during the meeting between the KU and Sindh Home Secretary that had envisaged the establishment of a sort of 'Campus Police,' based in the university but kept at a distance from the academic areas, to take swift and effective action in case of a law and order situation on the campus.
