16 illegal residents of hostel handed over to police

A Punjab University Hall Council team early on Tuesday morning at 6am checked hostel number 18 and handed-over 16 illegal residents to police which were found from the rooms of Islami Jamiat Talaba Nazim and they were handed over to Muslim Town police.

The team, consisting of senior teachers, warden and superintendent led by Chairman Hall Council Professor Dr Muhammad Akhter checked the rooms and record of the hostel and nabbed former IJT nazmeen, present activists and non-student elements from various rooms residing under the shelter of Jamiat. From the room of so-called IJT Nazim Azeem Khushi, room no 207 (box), non-student elements including Murtaza, Rashid Manzoor, Sajjad Ahmed and Hailey College's Ehsan Khursheed and Law College's Syed Ashfaq were found illegally residing and were handed over to Muslim Town police. Likewise, from the rooms of various IJT activists, non-student elements including Muhammad Khan, Muhammad Haroon, Syed Moazam, Raza Hussain, Ali Zaeem and Jahanzeb were nabbed and handed over to Muslim Town Police. Moreover, Law College's Umair, Ehsan Nadeem, Lal Din, PUCIT's Bilal Ahmed and Hailey College's Abu Sufyan were nabbed and handed over to Muslim Town police.

The PU spokesman said it again proved that Jamiat is involved in providing shelter to non-student and criminal elements at hostels. The spokesman said Punjab University administration would take stern action against those providing shelter to illegal residents under the law and would not accept any pressure. The spokesman said it again cleared that IJT's demand of construction of new hostels was just a drama and the capacity of boys' hostels is more than the genuine allotted ones.
