QUETTA: Two people were injured when supporters of two organisations clashed with each other in Government Science College here on Thursday, police said.

Members of the Pashtoonkhawa Students Organisation (PSO) and the banned Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) used firearms against each other after an argument over an unspecified matter.

“Activists of the PSO and ASWJ exchanged harsh words over an issue that led to firing from both sides, resulting in injuries to two people,” police said.

The injured were taken to the civil hospital where they were identified as Qudratullah and Shair Zaman.

The reverberation of gunshots sowed fear in students who abandoned their classes and left the college immediately. Tension prevailed in the city where both organisations have a number of their supporters.
