ISLAMABAD: A passenger bus was set on fire in Gujar Khan on Wednesday by students protesting the death of a young man.

The young man was sitting atop the bus, travelling from Rawalpindi to Faisalabad via GT road, when he reportedly slipped, fell and died on the spot.

Protesting the accident, the students set afire to the bus and damaged another bus coming from Lahore. Consequently, the GT road remained blocked for several hours.

Meanwhile, Rescue 1122 reached the scene with fire brigades to extinguish the fire.
