Inquiry ordered into assault on Quaid-i-Azam University teacher

ISLAMABAD, May 28(Daily Times): The academic community of the Quaid-i-Azam University was in a state of shock on Thursday when a university teacher was assaulted by a student at the university's Area Study Centre.

Vice Chancellor Qasim Jan on Saturday appointed a committee headed by Prof Eitzaz Ahmad of the Economics Department and a University Senate member to investigate the matter. The QUA Academic Staff Association will hold an emergency protest meeting on Monday.

According to sources, Amir Shehzad Ranjha, enrolled in his fourth semester, assaulted a senior research fellow Munawwar Hussain at the Area Study Centre for not giving Ranjha a passing grade in the session exams. Ranjha was fined twice earlier by the University Provost Office for engaging in violent acts against fellow students. His accomplices, who also threatened the concerned teacher before and after the assault, include Sardar Shoaib and Sufian Sikandar.

A group of senior professors met the vice chancellor on Saturday and urged him to take serious action against the students concerned so the teaching community could regain its sense of security.
