Overhead bridges a security threat for universities
Lahore: Overhead bridges, most of them located near educational institutions in the city, pose a serious security impediment as the police and the institutions' administrations continue to haggle over who should be responsible for the security arrangements at these bridges.

The city police are of the view that it is the responsibility of the administration of the educational institutions to provide adequate security to their students and they should hire security personnel for the purpose.

There are seven overhead bridges situated right in front of some of the city's largest universities. There are two overhead bridges at Jail Road, in front of Kinnaird College (KC) and Lahore College for Women University (LCWU), one in front of the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS), another near the Queen Marry College Lahore, while three overhead bridges are on the Canal in the University of the Punjab New Campus.

"The overheard bridge in front of my university has given me sleepless nights as the life of my staff and students is not safe because of it," said LCWU Vice Chancellor Professor Dr Bushra Mateen. Dr Bushra said she had done her best to improve security inside the varsity as it was her responsibility but the security at the overhead bridges outside educational institutions was the responsibility of those who had constructed the structures. She said the bridges provided unguarded points to terrorists seeking to launch attacks.

She said the students, staff and administration had protested against the construction of the overhead bridge. She said they had also obtained a stay order from the court against the construction of the bridge but the city administration had failed to understand the security threat they pose.

It was reported that the City District Government Lahore (CDGL) has hired two security personnel each from a private agency to ensure security at the overhead bridges in front of the LCWU and KC.

However, the security guards said they lacked counter-terrorism training. They said under the standard operating procedures of their security agencies they were not allowed to open fire on anyone.

One of the security guards, Sayyed Alam said they were only paid Rs 6,000 for 12 hours of security duty daily. "What can we possibly do for the security of the students when we get paid such a meagre amount?" he asked.

Aqsa Javaid, a student at KC said residents of the college hostels always felt insecure as anyone standing on the overhead bridge could easily throw a grenade into the college premises. She said the students have been under immense psychological strain due to this lurking threat. Recalling the attacks at the Liberty Market roundabout, the Manawan Police Training Centre and the FIA building, where hand grenades and heavy rifles were used instead of suicide bombing, she said this was the latest means of spreading terror and the overhead bridges made potential targets additionally vulnerable.

Sameera Khan, a student at the PU said the university departments and hostels were very vulnerable to attack due to the overhead bridges. She added terrorists could easily take pictures of the university from over the bridges and plan an attack. She said there was no security personnel deputed on these bridges whereas the PU Assistant Security Officer Muhammad Shaukat claimed university guards check the bridges every 30 minutes.

A traffic warden at Jail Road seeking anonymity said the government is not responding appropriately to the security threat the overhead bridges pose and the apathy could facilitate a terror strike. He said Jail Road and Canal Road are used daily by the Punjab chief minister to go to Model Town or Raiwind and he should take notice of lax security at these overhead bridges.

Superintendent Police (Security) Imran Arshad said he was not aware of the issue but would take immediate action now. Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Pervaiz Rathore said the city police was doing its best to provide adequate security to all citizens and students. He said the universities and colleges should make their own security arrangements, especially since they have the resources to do that. Daily times

SHC seeks additional report on IBA student's rustication
Karachi: The Sindh High Court on Monday directed the disciplinary committee of the Institute of Business Administration to submit an additional report on a three-year rustication of a student for using unfair means during an examination.

A division bench comprising Justices Gulzar Ahmed and Irfan Saadat Khan passed an order to this effect after hearing a report filed by the IBA director pursuant to an earlier SHC order.

Two students were expelled by the institute's disciplinary committee from the institute on May 14 for using unfair means during the examination of "Change Management and Business Process Re-engineering".

Citing the IBA director and the provincial education secretary as respondents, the student challenged the action against her in the high court. She maintained that the punishment of three-year rustication from the institution was excessive as compared to the one-year rustication awarded to two other students, Mohammad Samad Hussain and Tabish Karimi, who were punished on the same charge.

Her petition was earlier disposed of by the high court on Aug 28 with direction to the IBA director to reconsider her case after allowing her full opportunity of hearing.

The court observed that its direction was not complied with.

The court order said: "In the instant case it seems that the petitioner was not given a fair opportunity and secondly the punishment awarded to her seems to be far excessive than what has been awarded to Sarmad and Tabish who were found with scribbling on their hands and feet. In view of the contradictory statements by the respondent, we are inclined to agree with the contention of the petitioner that she has been discriminated and not treated at par with similar case of students. We are of the view that the direction of this court in order dated Aug 28 have not been complied with in letter and spirit."

The court on Monday observed that the disciplinary committee was directed to examine the case of the petitioner fairly, impartially and without any influence by extraneous consideration.

"Consequently without disturbing the disciplinary committee report submitted on Nov 21, 2009, we would like the committee to give additional report taking into consideration the case of Mohammed Samad Hassan and Tabish Karimi and consider the case of the petitioner in the light of the cases of these two students whether the punishment inflicted upon the petitioner can still be maintained by the respondent No 1 or not. Let such report be submitted within a month," the order said. Dawn
