Five Peshawar University students injured in baton charge

October 4, 2018

PESHAWAR: Five students were injured after the police applied baton charge on a group of students, who were protesting against a fee hike by the Peshawar University on Thursday.

According to details, the students were demonstrating against the fee hike for M Phil and PhD level students, demanding to withdraw the decision.

The police tried to control the situation through baton charge. As a result, five students sustained injuries.

The injured students were shifted to the Khyber Teaching Hospital while at least 28 students were arrested.

However, the university administration said that fee was increased after two years and it should not bother the students.

Following the protest, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said students have a democratic right to demonstrate peacefully.

He also demanded the immediate release of the arrested students and a reversal in the fee hike.
