Threat at co-education universities | IJT demo

Students panic after terror threat at 2 co-ed universities. Students evacuated from campuses, security deployed
Lahore: A situation of panic and uncertainty was created among the students of two local co-educational universities, after their administrations received threats of terrorist attacks, it was learnt on Thursday.

One of the universities had been receiving threats via phone calls and letters for several days, but on Thursday, an alleged terrorist threatened to blow up the university's buildings if the campus was not evacuated by 1pm.

After the threat, Rangers and security personnel were deployed at one gate while the other gate was locked. Seeing the security forces present outside their universities, the students panicked and immediately called their homes to be picked on an emergency basis. The university's buses also provided the students with pick and drop services. The university was successfully evacuated by 1pm and only the security personnel maintained their positions.

The university announced three holidays to prepare a comprehensive security plan, including installation of security cameras and recruitment of more guards, a student of the university said.

Another university on the same road also received similar threats and evacuated the students from the university's campus well ahead of the scheduled time. The classes of both the universities were adversely affected. Daily Times
