Intermediate admission forms | Rahman Medical College

Admission forms Picture waiver for girl students sought
Mansehra, Dec 14: Lawmakers have demanded of the provincial government to waive the condition that the female candidates attach pictures with the admission forms for intermediate and secondary school examinations.

Speaking to reporters in Battagram and here on Monday MNA Mohammad Nawaz Khan and MPA Mufti Kafayatullah said that the provincial education department should review its decision of binding the female students to also send pictures with the examination forms.

They said the intermediate and secondary education board Abbottabad had asked the women candidates to submit their pictures along with the metric and intermediate examination forms.

Mr Kafaitullah said that he would also take up the issue in the provincial assembly, adding, the condition was 'against' Sharia.

An official of the BISE Abbottabad said that the board had made compulsory the provision of female candidate's pictures for the examination. He said it was a collective decision taken by all the boards in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. Dawn

UET students get bail in murder case
Peshawar: The Peshawar High Court on Monday granted interim pre-arrest bail to eight students of University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Peshawar, charged with killing of a fellow student over playing music at a hostel.

A single-bench comprising Chief Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan directed the eight petitioners to furnish two sureties of Rs300,000 each.

The bench fixed Dec 20 for next hearing during which it would be decided whether to confirm their pre-arrest bail or order their arrest.

Advocate Ghulam Mohiuddin Malik appeared for the petitioners and contended that they were falsely implicated in the case.

One of the prime accused in the case, Nauman Khattak, was earlier arrested by police in Karak district, but was later on set free on bail by an anti-terrorism court.

The deceased, Adnan Abdul Qadir, a final year student of UET, had died at a local hospital on March 19 after he received serious injuries on March 12 in a clash with alleged activists of Islami Jamiat Tulaba (IJT). Mr Qadir belonged to southern Bannu district

The complainant in the case was Ibrahim Khan, a fellow student, who had charged nine members of IJT for the offence.

The accused included Sibghatullah, Muqeemuddin, Umer Farooq, Mohammad Ibrahim, Nauman Khattak, Zahid Khattak, Azizur Rehman, Fahad and Zulfiqar. The accused Nauman was arrested few days after the occurrence whereas rest of the eight avoided their arrest. Few days ago they filed pre-arrest bail petition before the anti-terrorism court in Peshawar, but it was dismissed on Dec 7.

However, as the eight petitioners were not present in the courtroom, therefore, they could not be arrested and they moved the high court for getting pre-arrest bail.

The death of the student had sparked violent demonstrations following which all the educational institutions on the Peshawar University Campus were closed down for few weeks.

Protesting students block road in Swabi
Swabi: The students of Postgraduate College Swabi staged a protest demonstration against public transporters here on Monday and blocked Swabi-Mardan Road.

The protesters gathered near the principal office at the college and then marched to Gohati bus stop where they blocked the road for an hour to all kinds of traffic.

Activists of all student unions participated in the protest demonstration. The protesters said that transporters were overcharging them. "We have informed officials of district administration about our problem but they are dodging us," they said.

They also accused transporters of misbehaviour. "They don't pick us from different bus stops. When the drivers see us they speed up their vehicles so we cant reach our college in time," they alleged.

They said that local officials failed to resolve their long standing transport problem. "The transport problem is our common issue and we will work collectively for its solution," members of different student unions said.

They said that they would not end their protest till their demands were not met. They alleged that district administration failed to take steps for putting the public transporters on track. Dawn
