Dow students boycott classes

KARACHI, July 26: A large number of students of the Dow Medical College on Wednesday boycotted classes in protest against the rustication of a final year student on misconduct charges.

The students also placed banners and posters inside the DMC's premises scribbled with slogans against the rustication order.

A spokesperson for the DMC said Usman Tariq, a final year student, was rusticated after he misbehaved with a professor, Zia Iqbal, and spoke against the DUHS administration despite being given repeated warnings.

The DMC officials said Usman was handed the rustication order after it was duly endorsed by the Students' Action Committee.

"After the decision the Jamiat students attacked the office of the vice-principal and damaged the furniture and windowpanes. They threatened to kill the vice-principal. An FIR has been lodged with the police against those involved," said a DMC official.

Usman Tariq said he was among the college students who were protesting against the increase of Rs200 in examination fees.

"I was stopped by the guard outside when I tried to visit the college principal. He later ushered me into the vice-principal's office where the latter warned me of action due to my activism against the increase in fees," Usman said. Dawn
