ISLAMABAD: Ghazi University in Punjab’s Dera Ghazi Khan refuting the viral video on social media accusing two of its professors of rape and blackmail of a female student, stated that video is old and action has already been taken in this regard.
A visibly distraught girl — reportedly a student of the university’s physics department — named the two teachers and shared they had “kept her in the hostel with them overnight”, in a viral video on social media.
“Now both the teachers are blackmailing my younger sister,” she said, adding that if the concerned professors are not punished, she would self-immolate.
Ghazi University spokesman Shoaib Raza addressing the complaint stated that the video being circulated was an old one, and action was taken on the victim’s complaint.
Moreover, a post on the university’s Twitter handle read: “Regarding the viral video by a female student on social media, all people are informed that this video is 4 months old and an inquiry was conducted on the request of the female student, as a result of which the concerned teachers were suspended.”
