Punjab University’s Pakhtun students protest against IJT

The Pakhtun students of Punjab University on Wednesday staged a protest against the Islami Jamiat Taleba (IJT), a rival student group, in Lahore, while also accusing police of being sympathetic to the latter’s demands.

The Pakhtun students’ rally, which progressed from Punjab University’s Old Campus towards the Lahore Press Club, was held with heightened tensions between the two student groups in the backdrop.

One student, Usman Ijaz, had earlier been injured in a firing incident in the university’s hostels.

The IJT had held protests across the city after Ijaz was shot, demanding that the police take immediate action against Pakhtun students who, they alleged, were responsible for opening fire.
