FAISALABAD, May 27:By Mohammad Saleem: The administration of the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, is in a fix over reports that some security officials are running a sex racket by trapping boarding girls.
Though vice-chancellor Dr Iqrar Ahmed has ordered an inquiry into the reports, the administration is finding it difficult to tackle the issue, as university’s reputation and future of some girls and security officials is at stake. The scandal came to light when Dr Ahmed was informed that some security officials trapped a BSC student and now were blackmailing her. A probe into the issue was started through women officials of the hostel and these women are only questioning the girls involved instead of considering all aspects of the case and investigating all those involved.
A preliminary investigation found six students involved in the scandal. Sources said the superintendent held the girls responsible for the scandal and described them as unfit for hostel life. They said the hostel administration was under pressure from security officials and other quarters to save those who allegedly trapped the girls.
A source said vehicles had been coming to pick the girls and security officials had been told not to stop any such vehicle from entering the hostel.
The administration has been trying to hush up the issue to avoid embarrassment and this is the reason that no directive in this regard has been issued in black and white.A number of political figures are among those who are trying to save the security officials.
Acting vice-chancellor Dr Ishfaq Rana said the VC would return in two days and would be in better position to speak on the issue.
