Third student dies from IJT-PSA clash

KARACHI, Aug 29: A student wounded in Saturday's clash between two student groups at the JPMC succumbed to his wounds at Civil Hospital Karachi early Tuesday morning.

According to the Punjabi Students Association, Salim, Adil and Yasir belonged to the PSA and they were injured allegedly by activists of the Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT).

They were taken to CHK where Salim was admitted and on Tuesday he died at around 5:45 a.m. The deceased was a final-year student of the Jamia Milia Polytechnic Institute, Malir and a resident of Azimpura. The PSA also claimed that "Salim was in police custody when he died".

Dr Seemin Jamali of the JPMC said that they did not have any admitted patients related to the student clashes. Five were admitted, one with a gunshot injury and four with minor injuries. She added that the student with the gunshot wound, Farhan of the IJT, died while the other four were discharged.

CHK's acting medical superintendent said that two PSA students were brought to the hospital with gunshot injuries, one of which, Salim, died Tuesday morning. The other one, Yasir, was discharged Monday and is in police custody now.
