HYDERABAD, Jan 20 Academic activities resumed at University of Sindh on Wednesday.

Regular classes were held in a peaceful manner in the teaching institutes and departments in morning and evening shifts.

Point buses for students, teachers and employees plied on different routes of Hyderabad, Latifabad and Qasimabad.

In the Mehran University of Engineering and Technology, seven students belonging to the student wing of a nationalist party were rounded up by the police for creating disturbances and trying to force boycott of classes.

However, no case was registered against them and they were released by the police after telephonic talks between the university administration and the party leadership.

University sources said that the students had demanded two point buses for a journey to Karachi to participate in a rally scheduled for Thursday (today).

The university authorities refused to provide buses to them on which the students hurled stones at the buses and tried to force boycott of classes.

SPSF Activists of the Sindh People's Students Federation held a demonstration outside the press club here on Wednesday to protest against registration of a murder case against their leaders belonging to the Sindh University.

The protesters warned of widening the scope of their protest if the “false” case against their leaders was not withdrawn.

Some SPSF workers have been booked in the murder case of Asad Abbasi, an activist of the Jeay Sindh Students Federation-A.

On the other hand, the JSSF-A has condemned an attack on their leader in Sindh University on Tuesday allegedly by SPSF workers.

JSSF-A leader Sajjad Shar, said in a statement that the murderers of Asad Abbasi were creating disturbances at the campus. They warned of calling for boycott of classes in the university if SPSF activists were not “reined in.”—Bureau
