FAISALABAD (May 27, 211): UAF trying to hush up sex scandal, The University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF) administration is trying to hush up the release of an objectionable video footage of female students and avoiding a clear-cut statement in this regard.
Earlier, the administration had announced that the probe into the scandal had been completed and report would be made public after the return of the vice-chancellor from a foreign tour.
Meanwhile in a statement on Friday, Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Iqrar Ahmad Khan has termed the alleged video footage of a female student a move to defame the prestige institution. The vice-chancellor said that the video did not belong to the university and it was used to damage the honour of the institution. He said that he had ordered an inquiry into the matter soon after it was brought to his notice. “Students’ Affairs Principal Officer Prof Dr Muhammad Younis was assigned the task to investigate the matter. In addition as per direction of the Higher Education Commission, an ethic committee has been constituted to deal with the issue,” he said. “An impartial inquiry has been initiated to look into the matter and decide the fate of the security officer and students. Till the decision of the inquiry, the entry of the security officer to the university has been banned.”
He claimed that as many as 4,000 students were studying in the university in a conducive environment and no such incident had ever occurred in the past. The vice-chancellor expressed his dismay over linking the video footage to the university. He said that it would hamper academic progress, damage creditability of the institution besides causing mistrust and frustration among parents and 4,000 female students.
