Netizens are demanding prompt action after a shocking incident involving the harassment of students within the premises of Karachi University surfaced on social media.
The case surfaced after a male student shared the whole incident on social media last night. The shocking incident has sent shockwaves across the whole social media and raised concerns regarding the security of students in KU.
A male student named Syed Shaheer Ali revealed that he and his two female friends were coming back from a birthday celebration at one of their friend’s place when this incident happened.
Shaheer wrote that he and his female friend were traveling within Karachi university premises after dropping on of their female friend at the IBA hostel.
Suddenly, a group of around 10 boys on four motorbikes appeared out of nowhere and surrounded their car.
The narrator of the incident revealed that he was shaking to death as he has no idea what is going to happen next. He and his friend were stuck around the bushes.
The group of 10 young men followed their car and kept hooting at the female student and at one point forced the car to stop.
But the male student holds his nerve and pressed the car accelerator and somehow managed to reach the security check post.
The male student said that the harassers were aged from 15 to 25 years. In a Facebook post, Syed Shaheer Ali wrote: “Trust me, I can’t even put into words the trauma my friend and I had to go through.”
“They had just one intention. If they had been successful to get inside the car, they would have beaten me and thrown me outside. And you all know what would happen with the girl,” he added.
The student revealed that his female friend is in a state of shock and he wasn’t able to sleep peacefully yet.
The security advisor of Karachi University Dr. Moeez Khan took the notice of the incident. He revealed that the authorities had identified the harassers.
He said that once the victims will identify the harassers then we will proceed with the case.
