Police stop university staff’s protest against PTI leader

Police in Dera Ismael Khan on Friday barred the professors and staff from protesting outside the Gomal University against the threats allegedly being given by former federal minister Ali Amin Gandapur to the university vice-chancellor (VC), reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Police forced the protestors to disperse when they were assembling at the GPO Chowk for the purpose after the Friday prayers.  

Former federal minister had allegedly not only threatened the VC but also made some suspicious persons enter the university premises in connivance with the police who later held some violent protest demonstrations against the vice-chancellor, resulting in the closure of the institution for an indefinite time period.   

Gandapur is also accused of orchestrating protests against the VC sometime back at the GPO Chowk. 

PML-N’s Pervaiz Rashid condemns Gandapur’s attitude:

In his statement, he said all such acts aimed at intimidating and dictating educational institutions’ heads should be condemned in strongest possible terms. “The arrest of these persons should be a top priority for the government so that the country’s future could be made secure,” he emphasized.
