Lahore: Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA) took out a protest rally on Friday to press for the early arrest of the Islami Jamiat Taliba (IJT) ringleader Usman Ashraf. Led by PUASA acting President Professor Dr Abdul Ghaffar and PUASA General Secretary Professor Javed Sami, the protesters demanded the arrest of Ashraf, who had orchestrated the brutal attack on PU Disciplinary Committee head Iftikhar Hussain Baloch.
