Punjab university barrier cutting incident

IJT activists held PU guards at gunpoint, cutted security barrier
Lahore, Nov 24: More than a dozen Punjab University (PU) Islami Jamiat Taliba (IJT) activists held two PU security guards at gunpoint and cut a security barrier and threw it into the canal on Monday.

PU Resident Officer (RO) Shahid Gull said the barrier had been constructed for security measures. He said the two security guards, Muhammad Asghar and Ashraf Ghani, were held at gunpoint, adding the guards had identified the IJT activists and submitted an application against them with the Muslim Town police station. The suspects include Usman Ashraf, Muhammd Ali, Tahir, Hafiz Qasim, Abdullah Lagharoi and Malik Tariq.

The barrier had been constructed at an underpass near the PU hostel Number One, the head office of the IJT. PU Hall Council Chairman Muhammad Akhtar said that IJT activists were "harming the university's environment."

A PU security guard, speaking on condition of anonymity, said IJT activists manhandled them every month and that they were helpless to do anything about it since most of the activists were armed whereas the guards were not.

Muslim Town SHO Shoaib Khan said he had not received any application against the IJT activists. Meanwhile, an IJT press release said no Jamiat activist had been involved in the alleged barrier cutting incident. Daily times

IJT activists accused of breaking security barrier
Lahore: The Punjab University (PU) administration on Monday alleged that activists of the Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) had cut a security barrier installed near the underpass adjacent to Hostel No 1, holding two security guards at gunpoint.

The incident took place between Sunday and Monday night at around 1:20 am when around a dozen IJT activists threw half of the barrier into the canal and fled away, after threatening the guards with dire consequences.

A PU spokesman said the administration had submitted an application with the New Muslim Town police station, according to which two patrolling guards noticed about a dozen Jamiat activists cutting the security barrier. The activists held the guards at gunpoint and threatened them with dire consequences.

The report added the activists also snatched cell phones of the guards so that they might not contact the PU security centre for their rescue. The activists included Usman Ashraf, Muhammad Ali and Tahir from Room No 214 of Hostel No 4, Hafiz Qasim from Hostel No 11, Abdullah Laghari from Hostel No 11 and Malik Tariq from Hostel No 9 were involved in the incident, it said.

According to another press statement, the PU Security Council chairman and pro vice-chancellor, Dr Jamil Anwar, said the administration had installed barriers for the safety of students following the directives of the Punjab government. He said those creating hurdles in the security measures would be held responsible if some unfortunate incident happened at the varsity.

When contacted, PU chapter IJT Nazim Qaiser Sharif rejected the allegations, saying the Jamiat had no connection with the incident. He said the PU administration was victimizing the activists as they had been protesting against problems facing the students. The news
