Student killed in clash between two groups outside Islamabad’s NUML

A student was killed and five injured after a fight broke out between two student groups outside Islamabad’s National University of Modern Languages Thursday night.

The students attacked Abdul Haq, a BBA student, and fled. The police said that the student died because of excessive bleeding after being attacked with a knife. Haq was a resident of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Karak.

Asghar, Rasheed, Khyber Khan, and Ihteshamul Haq are being treated at the PIMS Hospital.

The police said that the fight took place between students belonging to the Pashtun and Saraiki councils. They had a heated exchange on Wednesday night, after which the students clashed Thursday night.

Islamabad IG Qazi Jameelur Rehman has taken notice of the incident and ordered the Operations SSP to arrest all the suspects.

Students belonging to Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba held a press conference at the Deputy Commissioner’s Office on Friday and asked for a ban on ethnic councils.

“For the last few years, such groups have been dividing students on the basis of their ethnicity and deceiving them,” said Danial Abdullah, the president of the student organisation.

“We have visited the administration again and again, and asked them to take action,” he said. “Ethnic councils must be banned as they are bringing a bad name to the students.”

On December 12, 2019 a student, Syed Tufail, was killed in a clash between two groups at the International Islamic University in Islamabad.

The university was hosting a three-day mega education expo at its Activity Centre. Liaquat Baloch, a leader of the Jamaat-e-Islami, was addressing the closing ceremony when a group of 20 students entered the hall at 8:40pm. They picked a fight with one of the students and it led to chaos.

A student was shot in the leg, while another attacked with an iron rod. In all this, two attackers cornered a student named Syed Tufail. Two people held him by his hands, while another hit his head with a big rock. All the injured students were rushed to PIMS Hospital where Tufail succumbed to his wounds.
