against the college administration.
Students were protesting against the
college administration for not providing transport facilities to students coming
from Attari area. However, some college teachers believe that some unwanted

took 'action' against the students. Omer Aslam, a student of the college's Mass
Communication Department, also an intern at a local TV, was also among those
'taught a lesson by the police'. A teacher, seeking anonymity, said some
students met the college principal on Wednesday who asked them to submit an
application in this regard. 'On Thursday, instead of filing an application, they
went outside and blocked the road', he added. Another teacher said some students
also thrashed a traffic warden owing to which police resorted to thrashing.
However, a student on the condition of anonymity said the students from
Attari had complained on many occasion about traffic problems but to no avail.
