KARACHI: Students of Karachi University called off their protest after a fellow student who was allegedly "picked up" from the varsity's premises returned.
A KU student confirmed to Geo News that Saqib, the student who was allegedly "whisked away", has returned.
The students of the varsity had launched a protest, earlier today, after Saqib was allegedly "taken away".
The protesters told Geo News that the student, studying at the Department of Urdu, was allegedly whisked away by some people in plain clothes. They said the men claimed they were from a law enforcement agency.
However, KU Security Adviser Dr Moiz Khan said Rangers have disassociated themselves from the incident.
The university's administration analysed the closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage to identify the students and the people who picked him up.
After the incident, the students staged a protest outside KU's Silver Jubilee Gate and blocked the University Road.
However, upon the police's request, they shifted their protest to the front of the varsity's administration block.
The Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT) claimed that the student was its worker.
