FGCC student's accident | World Book and Copyright Day

Killing of student in road accident: Students block IJ Principal Road for over two hours
Islamabad, April 16: The students of Rawalpindi and Islamabad on Wednesday blocked IJ Principal Road near Faizabad for more than two hours to protest killing of their fellow Fahim Haider, a 3rd Year student of Federal Government College of Commerce (FGCC) H-8, in a road accident on Tuesday in the limits of Bhara Kahu Police Station.

About 200 students participated in the protest. They were holding placards inscribed with slogans demanding arrest of the killer of Fahim. A heavy contingent of police was present on this occasion to avert any untoward incident.

Muhammad Zubair, a student of FGCC and an eyewitness of the accident, told this scribe that Haider was overrun by the van when the conductor pushed him out of it.

The driver and conductor of the van escaped from the place of occurrence in connivance with the police, said Ashfaq, another student. The students said Bhara Kahu Police after registering the case only took the van into their custody but did not arrest the driver and conductor allegedly involved in the incident. They alleged that the police had information about the whereabouts of the accused but so far they had made no efforts to arrest them.

They demanded that the police arrest the accused immediacy otherwise they would prolong their protest. They said a number of students had been hit or overrun by the speeding vehicles in such incidents but the authorities had turned a blind eye to this issue.

The students said they would end their protest when the station house officer (SHO) of Bhara Kahu Police station would come to the place of their protest and assure them of the arrest of the accused on immediate basis. But Deputy Superintendent of Police Zubair Sheikh convinced them that he would order the SHO to meet them and arrest the people involved in killing of Haider.

The commuters badly suffered due to long blockade of the road. They strongly criticised the district administration for not settling the issue for a long time. "It was the responsibility of the administration to talk to infuriated students and assure them of the arrest of the driver," they said. Daily Times
