Police baton charge PoK university students as they protest demanding online exams amid COVID surge

Muzaffarabad, PoK: Police resorted to baton charge students of University of Azad Jammu and Kashmir in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) as they were demonstrating for holding online exams due to the surge in Covid-19 cases.

Around 50 students were also taken into custody from two campuses but were released in the evening after a commitment that they would not disturb the exam process, reports The Dawn.

University officials told The Dawn that the same group of students had also created a scene on the city campus last week in a bid to force the varsity to go for online exams.

The students had finally agreed to appear in the on-campus exams and had sought some time due to which exams were deferred until Feb 15, they said.
