Students protested and burned tyres against the murder of the school teacher thus suspending traffic.

While protesting against the incident, students blocked traffic on Saryab Phattak, Double Road, Imdaad Chowk, and Zarghoon Road. The angry students resorted to vandalism, forcing the police to use tear gas. They also burned down a memorial on Imdaad Chowk.

The police dispersed the protesters before restoring traffic.
