IJT expelled activists & Punjab University employees

Expelled IJT activists abduct PU employees
Lahore, Aug 28: A group of more than 15 Islami Jamiat Tulaba (IJT) activists and expelled students kidnapped three employees of the Punjab University (PU) Centre for Excellence in Solid State Physics on Thursday.

The abducted employees included security guard Abdul Qayum, gatekeeper Shahid Mehmood and driver Mohsin Rasool. According to a PU spokesman, the IJT activists took the hostages to Hostel No 4. However, officers of the administration reached the hostel and managed to have the employees released after some time.

Forced entry: The Centre's Director Prof Dr Shahzad Naseem reported to Vice Chancellor (VC) Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran that the department's guards brought a boy Usman Ashraf to him and complained that he had misbehaved when asked to show his identity.

The director said he tried to cool down the angry boy, but Ashraf said he was an expelled student of the university and could go anywhere in the university. He said even the VC could not stop him. According to the director, he asked the boy why he was in the department, but he refused to talk and threatened the director with dire consequences.

The director said Ashraf left the centre, and returned later with other people, and tried to abduct some of the centre's staff. The director said he went outside, and saw Ashraf with four or five other students.

Lesson: He said the activists said they had abducted the employees of the centre "to teach them a lesson".

PU Resident Officer Shahid Gul told Aaj Kal that he and other officials reached Hostel No 4 on receiving information, but the IJT activists released the employees on seeing the officials coming. He said the IJT activists also threatened the centre employees of dire consequences. He said they also returned the guard's kalashnikov after negotiating with the administration.

PU IJT Nazim Qaiser Sharif claimed the activist had gone to the centre to get some information, but the guards misbehaved with him. He alleged the guards also manhandled the activist. Daily times

'Outsiders' beat up GCUF students
Faisalabad: A group of students backed by some outsiders thrashed students of the Government College University Faisalabad on Thursday, forcing the university administration to close information desks meant for admission seekers, it has been learnt.

Sources said students of the Banking and Finance department were present in their department when more than two dozen youngsters, led by Ali Gujjar, tortured them. They said the security staff remained a silent spectator.

During the clash, employees present at help desks ran for cover leaving the desks deserted. Students said the administration was least interested in reining in a group of students which had been given a free hand to terrorise other students.

They said when they approached the vice-chancellor office for help, they were told to go back to the department.

Earlier, on July 14 this group had beaten two students in the presence of security officials. The group also resorted to aerial firing to panic the people, sources said.

They alleged that this group on Jan 13 last also tortured some students and a case was registered against its members with the Gulberg police under sections 148, 149 and 427 of the Pakistan Penal Code.

The group also subjected some students to torture on the campus in December last and the university got registered a case against two dozen people.

Security chief Ashraf said efforts were on to maintain order on the campus, and the administration would act against the miscreants. He said a probe into the issue had been initiated. Dawn
