Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Karachi will hold a meeting today (Saturday) to discuss the possibility of constructing an alternative route from the University of Karachi (KU) Maskan Gate to its main campus, which is being built at the KU site.
The move was taken following an argument between an IBA student and a KU teacher.
In today’s governor’s board meeting, chaired by the Executive Director of IBA, Dr Akbar Zaidi, the agenda with the headline ‘The relationship between IBA and KU and the future’ will be discussed, among others.
The meeting will discuss a road map for building an alternative route.
The proposed route will require those visiting the IBA main campus to take a detour from the KU exam complex towards the back of the campus, from where they can enter the IBA campus. For this reason, it is necessary to build a road whose approval will be given by the KU syndicate.
A source at KU who knows the secret of this development The Express Tribune on condition that it is kept confidential that no road construction request has been proposed by the IBA.
This was confirmed by the KU administration.
IBA does not have ownership of its main campus at KU and a route that connects the Maskan Gate to the campus entrance. In the past, various attempts have been made to transfer ownership rights to the IBA.
Investigate the fight
An IBA student clashed with a KU teacher, Mustafa Haider, last February. A disciplinary committee was formed by the IBA to investigate the matter and alleged student misconduct.
According to a source at IBA, who asked not to be identified, the student in question did not appear before the disciplinary committee, but has submitted a written apology stating that he was not aware that the person fighting with him was a KU. teacher.
The source said CCTV footage of the incident showed Haider and the KU guards beating the student.
On the other hand, a source at KU stated that Haider’s actions were a reaction to the student’s indecent actions. This was exacerbated by verbal harassment by students who were present at the venue, said a KU source.
