Assault on English Dept students at PU

LAHORE, April 23(Daily Times): The Punjab University's disciplinary committee will submit its recommendations in a week on punishing Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) workers for assaulting two English Department students a couple of weeks ago.

The recommendations will be presented to the university vice chancellor.

PU Registrar Prof Dr Naeem Khan said on Sunday that the inquiry committee had sent its final report to the varsity's disciplinary committee for its recommendations. "A final decision will be taken on the committee's recommendations," he added.

Last week the vice chancellor expelled 23 IJT workers/students for ransacking the varsity's pharmacy festival on the pretext that concerts were being organised at the festival.

A large number of IJT activists, while demonstrating outside the Lahore Press Club on Sunday, condemned the university vice chancellor for expelling the 23 students.

The workers, carrying banners and placards, chanted against the vice chancellor and demanded his removal. They alleged that the students were 'unlawfully' expelled, saying the vice chancellor could not expel the students before issuing a show cause notice to them.

PU IJT nazim Muhammad Ayub alleged that organising concerts on campus was in violation of the university's calendar. He also alleged that IJT students were expelled for expressing their solidarity with lawyers over the Supreme Court chief justice issue. He said, "We don't accept an army vice chancellor for the university. He also said the vice chancellor had introduced a dictatorship on campus.
