They said the UoB is the main educational institution of the province where boys and girls are getting education for their bright future but in the name of security, these students have been disgraced through secretly recorded videos.
They said no society could allow committing such a heinous and shameful act with their own children, adding that our tradition rather taught people to sacrifice their lives for the honour of others.
They said in Balochistan parents hardly send their children, particularly girls, for education and in this environment, such incidents seemed to be a conspiracy to bar girls and boys from pursuing higher education.
