A clash between the students of Kohat campus of the University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Peshawar, and class-IV employees landed a watchman in hospital on Monday.

A student of the final year of civil engineering department, Noor Islam, was handed over to Saddar police and a case was registered against him for beating watchman, Farhan, whose condition was stated to be serious.

According to sources, Mr Islam went home after appearing in the ongoing examinations daily and allowed the watchman, Farhan, to stay in his room in the hostel in his absence.

On Monday, Mr Islam asked the watchman to vacate his room as he would be living there during rest of the examination, but the watchman started using bad language against him and refused to vacate the room, said the sources.

The brawl intensified and the class-IV employees came for the help of their colleague and beat the student.

Later, dozens of students gathered there and thrashed the watchman and other class-IV employees. The watchman Farhan was shifted to divisional headquarters hospital, KDA.

The police arrested the student and registered a case against him.
