PESHAWAR: A student from Chitral was tortured at Peshawar University’s provost office for requesting to stay at the university hostel.
The government’s announcement to close the universities and take online classes has created trouble for students as majority of them are underprivileged and cannot afford this facility.
The boy said they did not have internet facility at Chitral and he could not miss online classes, therefore he went to the provost office to seek permission to take online classes while staying at the hostel.
The student alleged that the assistant provost tortured him before the registrar and chief proctor.
“I was detained at the police station of university campus for four hours without any crime or reason,” he said.
