Police nab MUET student for keeping pistol
Hyderabad: A student of the Mehran University of Engineering and Technology (MUET) was arrested by Jamshoro police on Wednesday for keeping an unlicensed pistol, while a day earlier an ex-student of the Sindh University was also nabbed on the same charge.

Rameez Aftab s/o Abdul Aleem Ansari, an SPSF activist and a student of Meteorology Department was summoned to the office where police were also present. Police searched him and on remaining unsatisfied asked for searching the classroom.

Rameez who had left his bag with one of his class fellows Rohit sent an SMS message to hide the weapon which was intercepted by police, said university sources. Police recovered a pistol from the bag and took both, Rameez and Rohit to police station. Later, Rohit was released but Rameez was booked under section 13-D of the arms Ordinance.

DEMO: A large number of MUET students belonging to the Jeay Sindh Students Federation staged a demonstration outside the press club on Wednesday in protest against the delay in arresting killers of their mate, Asadullah Abbasi.

Earlier, they staged a rally from Gul Centre to press club carrying banners and placards.

JSSF leaders Majid Hyderi, Mushtaq Jamali, Hyder Shah and others alleged that since the murderers of Asadullah Abbasi enjoyed the support and patronage of the government, therefore, they were not being arrested by police.

The JSSF leaders accused Jamshoro DPO Farrukh Bashir of supporting killers.

They said that miscreants had destroyed the peace of campus but nobody was interested in taking action against them. They appealed to writers, intellectuals and leaders of public opinion to take notice of the hooliganism that has become the order of the day at Jamshoro campus. Dawn
