It is just being reported that today late at night the rangers have finally been able to registered an FIR against Dr. Riaz for allegedly assaulting a Rangers officer (FIR # 73-08 Riaz Ahmed vs Anwar ul Haq at Mubina Town Police Station). The source is also reporting that just a few hours earlier (11:00pm) today Dr. Riaz suffered nausea and vomiting and was immediately rushed to the hospital and the doctors on duty have advised him an extensive CT scan which at 3:00pm is still underway. It is likely the Nausea and vomiting may have something to do with the extensive injury he received to his head after the battering served to him by the Rangers
A careful analysis of the situation has slowly developed. It all started on the afternoon of the 31st March where two student groups, which have surprisingly remained unnamed in the media [APMSO & PSF] [Student wings of MQM and PPP] had in effect a territory war on Karachi University. Sources say that it started off in the usual way [leave my girl friend alone argument] but developed into a bull blown battle. To control the deteriorating situation the University instructed the on duty Rangers to seal the campus preventing anyone to enter the premises, essentially to prevent the build up of supporters of the rival gangs from outside.
NOTE: One graphic picture after the jump please proceed carefully
All teachers [including Dr. Riaz] were
[huddled in a room] asked to remain within the University premises, but around 5:00pm Dr. Raiz decided to head on home, upon reaching the Silver Jubilee gate he asked the Rangers to let him exit and go home which they refused, he followed up with identifying himself as a professor and teacher of the Karachi University, incidentally during this conversation he saw that the gates were opened up allowing two young gentlemen on motorcycle & one rickshaw to enter the University, this in effect infuriated him, the orders from the VC were prevent outsiders from entering the premises but contrary to the order the Rangers were allowing people to come inside, while those [like him] desiring to leave were being prevented.
An exchange of words ensued and the senior officer threatened him with dire consequences, which did not ride well and moments later summoned four jawans [Rangers] to physically drag him out of his car, lay him on the ground and beat him with boots, sticks and rifles. The battering continued for over 25 minutes.
When he was left Dr. Riaz was visibly and physically beaten sore but remained at the scene until the Vice Chancellor arrived 40 minutes later. It was then that Dr. Riaz filed a full complaint with the VC and remained stationed at the gate until the media arrived to record his statement on TV.
According to the spokesman [for the Rangers Captain Fazal], when Dr Ahmed was not allowed [to leave through the Silver Jubilee Gate], he used abusive language and pushed one of the Rangers personnel who fell. The two became involved in a brawl, he said. Captain Fazal denied that the teacher had been beaten up at all. On the contrary, he insisted that it was the Rangers man who got injured and had one of his fingers fractured
I have been shared these pictures [please proceed carefully] of Dr Riaz which show how severely he was beaten up, his back shows a number of red marks as if someone gave him severe lashing, there are about 4-5 bumps on his head and his left arm has been placed in a cast. Since the incident happened within the KU premises Dr. Riaz followed normal procedures and filed an extensive report with the University administration [not an FIR, as University is not in Police jurisdiction] and following the report went immediately to Agha Khan Hospital for a full medico-legal examination to document his injuries.
This could be one side of the story but the facts remain that one university professor is actually admitted in Ahga Khan undergoing a CT scan while the fractured pinky remains elusive. The People’s Resistance has already demanded a full extensive inquiry into this issue and the culprits must be brought to justice.
Quite literally my heart screams How Dare They !!!
