IJT workers riot, block roads in Lahore

LAHORE, Sept 15: Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) activists on Friday blocked roads, burnt tires and pelted stones at the police across the city against the recent killings of their five party workers in Karachi.

Due to the protest rallies traffic jams occurred on Lower Mall, Civil Lines Road, Wahdat Road and Campus Road, which put not only commuters but vehicles including ambulances in hot water. When the mob went out of control the police had to fire in the air.

The biggest protest was witnessed on the Lower Mall Road where a large number of IJT workers burnt tires and blocked the traffic. On Wahdat Road, near the New Campus, IJT workers offered the funeral pray for the deceased in absentia. They blocked the road for several hours.

When the IJT workers threw crackers at the police, the police also started firing in the air and forced the IJT workers to clear the blockades.

Punjab University IJT nazim Muhammad Ayub said six IJT workers have been injured after the police fired at them.

He alleged that the All Pakistan Muttahida Students Organization (APMSO) was behind the recent Karachi killings. He said, "Our two workers Shabbir and Akber are in critical condition due to the police firing."

Deputy Superintendent of Police Rana Azeem said the police did not fire at the IJT workers. He said that the IJT workers had blocked the roads and when police tried to clear the blockades on Campus Road and Wahdat Road, IJT workers threw crackers at the police. He said no IJT worker has been injured in the incident. Daily Times
