IJT, APMSO Students clash at Saifi College

Karachi, March 04, 2008: A student was injured after an exchange of fire between activists of the All Pakistan Muttahida Student Organization (APMSO) and the Islami Jamiat Tulaba (IJT) at Saifi College within the jurisdiction of the Hyderi Police Post, Monday.

Following the event, the management took a decision to declare Tuesday a holiday.

According to Hyderi Police Post Incharge, Manzar Imam, when the police reached the scene, IJT activists were burning the motorcycles of students at the college, Imran and Rashid. After dispersing the activists, the police found Imran and Rashid who were tortured and left packed in sacks by the IJT activists.

IJT spokesman, Mohammad Obaid, denied any violence by their workers and claimed that a case against the APMSO has already been registered prior to the elections. He said that on Monday some IJT workers encountered workers from the APMSO. The APMSO workers did not do anything there but later came to Saifi College and started firing that left an IJT worker, Riaz Ahmed injured. Ahmad was rushed to the Abbasi Shaheed hospital.

Javed Kazmi, an inquiry officer, for the case said that Ahmed had stated that he was standing along with his associates when activists from APMSO came and opened fire. He also said that this was an ongoing process, "when they hit us, we hit them."

On the contrary, APMSO spokesman Abdul Raheem denied the IJT claims and repeated what the police said. He added that Imran and Hameed were not associated with the APMSO and were tortured by mistake. "I think that they thought they were APMSO workers after checking their national identity cards (NICs)," he said.

Both parties were sitting at the police station to register a case against each other prior to the filing of this report. Daily Times
