SWAT: A notice issued by the Chief Proctor of University of Swat on Friday barred the university's male and female students from socialising with each other.

According to the notice, students sitting or walking with those of the opposite gender inside the university, as well as outside the campus premises will have to pay a penalty ranging from Rs50 to Rs5000, along with an emergency meeting between their parents and school authorities.

However, soon after the notice was issued, the Vice Chancellor of University of Swat, Dr Jan Bakht, ordered an explanation call to Chief Proctor Hazrat Bilal for issuing the notification without his permission, spokesperson for University of Swat stated.
