Students of Balochistan University continued their protest on Wednesday 30, Oct for the 17th consecutive day against the alleged harassment and blackmailing of several students.
The protesting students have demanded that the authorities arrest the former vice chancellor who had stepped down following the scandal and other suspects allegedly involved in the issue. They have also called for restoration of the student union and removal of FC check posts at the university.
The case had come to light last month when the Balochistan High Court (BHC) directed the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to investigate reports of students being harassed at the varsity.
Rights activist Jibran Nasir joined the protesting students today. The activist, while addressing the protesters in the university, expressed his solidarity with them. He stressed the need of unity among students and urged student bodies in the university to join each other for restoration of the student union.
