Hooliganism mars exams at Karachi University
Karachi: Students taking law and medical exams at Karachi University on Monday were shocked when some activists tore up their answer scripts to protest the murder of student activist.

"It was quite disappointing that our answer scripts were torn up by some students in the presence of a large number of Rangers and KU security personnel deployed on the campus," deplored a candidate, who appeared in MBBS (First Professional) exam.

Campus sources said that student activists asked the university administration to postpone the Monday papers after receiving news of the death of the student, who had been attacked two days back. But, they added, the administration did not take the matter seriously and failed to provide complete security to candidates.

The sources said that Karachi University Vice-Chancellor Dr Pirzada Qasim had asked the pro-vice-chancellor and the controller of examinations to ensure peaceful conduct of the exams, but they could not make proper security arrangements.

Meanwhile, the university's examination department has announced that both the LLB (Part-I) and MBBS First Professional (Part-A) papers, which were marred by hooliganism, have been postponed to June 27.

Timings and examination centres will remain unchanged, according to a KU notification. Dawn

Expensive equipment stolen from KU pharmacy dept
Karachi: Burglars barged into the instrument room of the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Karachi (KU), late Monday night and decamped with a High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) unit, Scanners, and some other instruments. The HPLC cost around Rs1.2 million.

In charge of the department, Dr Fayyaz Vaid, expressed his surprise that the incident could happen right under the noses of the KU Security and the Rangers. "The bolt of the locked room was cut by the burglars and the instruments were carried away. How can they do it when the main gates are guarded 24 hours a day," Dr Vaid wondered.

The apathy of the KU Security was evident by their lukewarm attitude. A Security Officer came, spoke with the teachers and staff of the department and went. Nothing was done till 2:00 pm when two police personnel from the Mubeena Town Police station arrived in the department.

Karachi University Teachers Society Secretary Dr Shakeel Farooqui, who had earlier arrived, objected to the visit of the police personnel who were supposed to be accompanied by the KU Security.

"An FIR has been registered and hopefully there will be some positive development in the case," Campus Security Secretary Arman Ahmed said. The News
