KARACHI: As the world marked the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists, security guards at the Karachi University manhandled journalists and media workers Monday.
Reports said the media persons were covering a women's cricket match at the campus. The game had been scheduled in protest after another match last week was forcefully stopped by students representing Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba. University officials said IJT activists beat up few male and female students playing cricket together last week.
The security staff Monday stopped journalists from covering the game, and abused and manhandled them. As a result, some media persons ended up with their clothes torn.
The security personnel also shut the university gates in order to prevent journalists leaving the campus.
