University of Punjab (PU) again became a battlefield after a clash broke out between two groups of students, namely Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT) and Punjab Council, at the university’s canteen on Friday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

The enraged students, belonging to the IJT, did not spare the vice-chancellor’s (VC) office even as they stormed into it and smashed its doors and windows. 

They later entered the Admin Block and damaged its infrastructure, spreading fear and panic in the staff. 

The students even threatened the university guards with dire consequences.

It has emerged that the scuffle broke out at the time of Friday prayers following an exchange of hot words between members of the rival groups.

The Jamiat students threw stones at the Punjab Council students sitting at the canteen. 

Meanwhile, CCPO Lahore has ordered the police force to take action and restore the situation at the Punjab University.
