Two men were arrested on Thursday after entering a university in Multan in their bid to escape after robbing people.
Two robbers were fleeing a group of residents after looting people and entered the Muhammad Nawaz Sharif University of Agriculture's research centre.
Though the robbers had fired before entering the university, they did not open fire within the compound, possibly because their ammunition had finished or because the research centre is not crowded and there were only guards there.

The police have begun an investigation.
