QAU remains shut as students’ protest enters sixth day

ISLAMABAD: Educational activities at Quaid-e-Azam University (QAU) remain suspended as a protest by students entered its sixth day on Monday.

According to a private news channel, the students claim to be protesting for better facilities in the hostels and for the cancellation of the recent hike in fees.

However, QAU officials said the real reason for the protest is their demand of bringing back the students who were expelled owing to the recent clashes in the varsity.

Last week, as the protest began, the students blocked the main university road and did not allow buses to ply on the campus.
