Karachi:February 23:A clash between two student groups at the Federal Urdu University for Arts, Science and Technology (Abdul Haq campus) disrupted the schedule for degree examinations on Wednesday.
According to Fuuast officials, no classes would be held on Thursday (today) on the city campus. Besides, a paper of BA (private) scheduled for Thursday has also been postponed. A new schedule for the disrupted papers would be announced soon, officials said.
Several students sustained minor injuries during the clash. They were taken to the Civil Hospital for first aid. Salman Khan, Nazim of the Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba at FUUAST, said that the activists of the People’s Students Federation (PSF) had been making fun of the newcomers, and the clash took place when the Jamiat people objected over their behaviour.
Three IJT men, Ehtisham, Ikhlaq and Atiq had sustained injuries. The IJT activist claimed that the matter had now been resolved, and the two groups had arrived at a compromise. However, the in charge of the PSF, Kamran Khan, rejected the IJT’s claims and alleged that a large number of IJT activists had indulged in staging a “show of power” during election for a new Nazim of theirs and attacked them for no reasons.
PSF activists Mehboob Alam, Qasim, Arshad, Zulfiqar and Atif Alam were injured during the clash, he said. Five activists of the PSF were also arrested from outside the campus and taken to the Eidgah police station. However, no FIR was registered, and the activists were released after a while. The Station House Officer at the Eidgah Police Station, Sajid-ul-Hasan, said that the FIR was not registered because the two parties had agreed to settle the matter peacefully.The news.
