Punjab University reopens four days after clash

LAHORE: University of the Punjab (PU) reopened on Monday after it remained closed for four days following a clash between two student groups.

A representative of the university, Khurram Shehzad said: "Only gate number one will be open; all other entrances will remain closed. We have taken all necessary steps to ensure a peaceful environment on the premises."

PU's vice chancellor is scheduled to meet the department heads for all faculties, sources told.

Baloch-Pakhtun council's media advisor Adil Zaman said students will only attend classes once reservations of the group are addressed.

"We have not reconciled with the other student group," Zaman said. He alleged that bogus cases were filed against members of the Baloch-Pakhtun council.

In a statement, a university representative said political activities are banned in the university. "The police will remain posted on the university premises," he said.

Earlier on March 21, at least 18 students were left wounded due to a clash between two rival student groups in Punjab University, prompting authorities to call in police to help control the situation.

Television footage showed an unconscious student being whisked away by his friends. 

Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah put the responsibility of the clash on Islami Jamiat Tulba (IJT) activists. He said that 18 out of 22 arrested students involved in brawl belonged to the IJT.

The IJT, on the other hand, said its camp first came under attack by the rival group.

Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif took notice of the incident and summoned a report. The chief minister stressed that action would be taken against those responsible and no one was above the law.

The chief minister also ordered that the best medical care is provided to the injured students.
