KARACHI: Lack of security and problems in admissions process are two of the several issues faced by University of Karachi (KU) that need to be resolved.
Shakeel Farooqi, general secretary of the Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (Fapuasa) and former Karachi University Teachers Society president, said this while addressing a press conference on Thursday at the office of the varsity's dean of sciences.
The Fapuasa general secretary called for the immediate repair of the varsity's boundary wall which has been broken at some places, posing security issues. Farooqi, however, claimed that there was satisfactory security at the varsity for ambassadors and VIPs who came to attend convocation and other events.

Farooqi also discussed matters related to the varsity's admission policy. Some students had been denied admission to KU, he said, adding that the association would request the vice-chancellor and admission committee on Monday to resolve issues of students who could not get admission to KU.
