DJ College teachers 'manhandled'
Karachi: The invigilation staff at DJ Government Science College on Tuesday boycotted Tuesday's second-shift paper of the higher secondary school certificate annual examination after some teachers of the college were manhandled by supporters of a student organisation.
When DJ Science College principal Prof Hakeem Baig Chughtai was contacted to find out his version of the event, he said that though the morning shift paper was conducted peacefully at the college, the unpleasant incident, which occurred after the morning shift paper was over, forced the teachers of the college to boycott the evening shift's paper.
He said the incident did not have any link with the examination, but it took place when some 20 outsiders belonging to a student organisation came to the college and objected to the seating arrangements of male and female students of the bachelor of computer science class at the college.
However, when some teachers of the college reminded them that they had no right to dictate their terms about the seating arrangements, the students got angry and manhandled some teachers of the college, causing them minor injuries.
The incident, he said, sparked a wave of anger among teachers of the college and, as such, they decided to boycott the paper which was to be conducted at the college in the second shift.
Prof Chughtai said an FIR had been lodged against the students for manhandling the teachers of the college at the Preedy Street police station and two of the students had already been arrested by the police.
Paper rescheduled for June 1
Board of Intermediate Education Karachi chairman Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai said that Tuesday's second shift paper (Accounting Paper-II), which could not be held at D. J. Science College examination centre due to the boycott by teachers, would now be held on June 1 at the same time and place.
Two students arrested
Two students of DJ Government Science College were booked and arrested for beating up a teacher.
The Preedy police said a teacher was beaten up by the students on the premises of the college.
The area SHO, Kansan Dean said that a police party immediately reached the spot and arrested the two students, Mazhar and Waqas.
The Preedy police said the two students were booked and arrested in a case (FIR 645/2009) under Sections 147 (punishment for rioting), 148 (rioting armed with deadly weapon) and 334 (causing hurt) of the PPC on the complaint of a college lecturer, Mehmood Mohammed.
Condemning the incident which occurred at DJ Science College on Tuesday, the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association's general secretary, Prof Iftikhar Azmi, demanded that the provincial education department take strict measures to bring an end to political meddling in the educational institutions by student organisations affiliated with political and religious parties.
He also urged the government to immediately restore student unions and thus promote positive activities in educational institutions. Dawn
