Punjab University Vice-Chancellor condemns firing incident

Lahore: Punjab University Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran has strongly condemned the firing incident at the house of Chairman Physics and Member Syndicate Prof Dr Shaukat Ali. The Vice-Chancellor contacted IG Police Javed Iqbal to take immediate action against the culprits involved, who issued instructions to DSP Muslim Town to immediately take stern action upon which police rushed to campus instantly. According to PU Spokesman, the administration can neither be pressurized nor stopped to implement rules and regulations through these criminal and illegal activities.

According to details, the Disciplinary Committed called Ibrar Watto of Law College for personal hearing for being involved in illegal activities. He came along with his 20-25 accomplices. Later two masked students on red CD-70 bike opened fire at the door of Dr Shaukat Ali’s house and one bullet pierced into the gate and hit the drawing-room. Chowkidar Mehmood and armed guard Waheed, who were standing outside guest house, tried to nab the culprits but they succeeded to flee from the scene.

They were carrying silver pistol in their hands. It is pertinent to mention here that Prof Dr Shaukat Ali is a member of Disciplinary Committee and has been elected PU Syndicate recently. PU administration has filed application to police for necessary legal action. Moreover, PU teachers will take out rally against the incident today (Wednesday) at 10:00am from the Centre for Undergraduate Studies.
