Libyan student expelled for taking girl’s pictures
ISLAMABAD: A Libyan student was expelled from the National University of Modern Languages (Numl) after he took photographs of a girl student, causing a brawl here on Monday.
An insider told Dawn that the brawl took place when the Libyan student — Taha — of the Functional Courses Department was spotted by two local students Raja Irfan and Abbas taking the photographs at open area of the university.
They asked Taha not to take photographs of the girl and discard those already taken. This led to exchange of harsh words between them.
Later, five to eight students of various Arab countries joined Taha and thrashed Irfan and Abbas.
As the news about the incident spread, a large number of students gathered at the spot and separated the brawling students from each other.
The department’s staff also rushed to the spot and dispersed the students.
Later, Industrial Area police reached the university, but the Numl’s administration did not allow them to take any action against the students involved in the brawl.
An inquiry conducted by the head of the department — Jawaid Ahmad — found Taha guilty.
The Libyan was expelled from the university and the two local students were placed on six-month probation.
