Quetta (HRNW) The City SP in Quetta has been removed from his post for arresting over two dozen student protesters demanding access to the internet on Wednesday.
Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan confirmed the news in a tweet and said “appropriate action” will also be taken against a female constable for mishandling the protest.
“No students’ arrest was ordered by the government,” he claimed. According to the CM, the students were arrested following a “quarrel” with the police. The students were immediately released.
Students in Quetta have been staging demonstrations for the past few weeks under the banner of the Baloch Students Committee. They are protesting against online classes at universities across the province.
