KIU students protest fee hike

GILGIT, Oct 22: The students of Karakoram International University (KIU) staged a protest demonstration against the management’s decision to raise fees by 50 per cent here on Wednesday.

Belonging to various faculties including management sciences, education and English, the students boycotted classes and came out on the main campus chanting slogans against the vice-chancellor Dr Aziz Ali Najam and asking him to withdraw the decision.”There were more than 150 students who took part in the protest while students from many other departments were stopped by their teachers from joining the protesters,” said an eyewitness.

The protest demonstration continued for hours after which the management officials came to the spot and promised to the students that the decision would be reviewed in one week.
