Civil society and students protested against police violence in QAU

On Thursday, protesters from student organisations and members of civil society gathered outside the National Press Club to voice their opposition to the recent crackdown on students at Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU).



The demonstration was called after an operation against Quaid-i-Azam University students, the deployment of Rangers, anti-terrorist squads, and police forces on the campus, according to a news statement released here.



Several pupils were hurt as a result of a violent altercation between students on Monday. It stated that numerous people were detained without being given any charges or filing a FIR.


The demonstrators said that female students were forced to leave hostels in the middle of the night without being given alternate housing, and that upsetting campus sights included students being pummeling or terrified female students scurrying out with their suitcases at night.
