Guards did not beat up Television crew Punjab University spokesman

Lahore: Punjab University Spokesman has clarified the news item published in the press and stated that no incident of “beating” the reporter and cameraman of a private TV channel by security guards had occurred as even there was no security guard at that time.

The spokesman said the security administration had a role to play keeping in view security situation of the country. Dr Shakeel Malik, Hostel Superintendent and also a teacher, asked the cameraman and reporter of the TV channel to let him talk to higher authorities or arrange a call on his own for permission.

The news team was of the view that this was a little incident at hostel No. 2 and there is no need of permission. Over this a little quarrel happened but later the matter was resolved peacefully between the parties. And all the news in this regard published in media are baseless that the security guards brutally tortured reporter Rizwan Nazir and cameraman Imtiaz Khan. Both are respectable for the varsity.
