GCU directed to readmit rusticated students
Lahore: Justice Najam-uz-Zaman of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday directed the Registrar Government College University (GCU) to consider readmission of those students who were rusticated for staging protest against the GCU administration.

The judge also directed the Registrar to ask the university authorities to withdraw cases against the students for the sake of their academic career. The judge observed that there was no justification of cases under terrorism act against the students for staging a simple protest. "They are students not criminals," the judge further observed.

Meanwhile, a law officer told the court that the students had been declared innocent in the investigation held by the police.

Adjourning the hearing till November 14 the judge directed the GCU Registrar to come up with a report about the steps taken by the administration with regard to the reinstatement of the students.

The next day, the students held a protest demonstration on Lower Mall against GCU administration's harsh punishment.
