Varsity hostels being watched for bombers

LAHORE, July 23: Intelligence agencies are keeping an eye on public university hostels in the city after official reports of suicide bombers having entered the city to take revenge in wake of the Lal Masjid operation. Officials said on Sunday that the hostels of Punjab University, University of Engineering and Technology, Government Islamia College Civil Lines, Poly-Technical College Railway Road, Government Science College and a few others were being watched. They also said intelligence personnel were trying to figure out if there were arms and ammunition in the hostels.

Officials said there were many more hostels under watch, but the above-mentioned hostels were a special case because of their known links to religious extremists and political activists. Many political and religious parties including the Muslim Students Federation, Islami Jamiat Talaba, People's Students Federation and a few religious factions are known to operate in these institutions. Also, security has been increased around public places present around these universities. Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Malik Muhammad Iqbal said security around educational institutions was increased to pre-empt any move by terrorists. He said the administrations of the universities were responsible for security on campus and that the police and other security agencies were at their beck and call. He said universities authorities should set up a plan to make sure on campus security remained good and should make students aware of extremist elements on campus. He said the security apparatus had a special focus on Punjab University because it was the largest in Punjab and that terrorists could easily mingle with students there. Separately, Punjab University has summoned a meeting for today (Monday) to review its security. PU Registrar Prof Dr Muhammad Naeem Khan said the meeting would plan university security. Daily times
