FAISALABAD: School students in Faisalabad turned into a violent mob on Friday after the killing of their colleague in a traffic accident on Sargodha Road.
Sources said an intermediate student, Haider Ali, was run over by a public bus in front of the Government Islamia College after which his colleagues, in rage, set the bus on fire.
However, the frenzy did not subside there as they then set on fire five other buses as well as damaged other vehicles plying the road.
The students turned into a violent mob and even kept the rescue and police officials at bay — letting the fire burn.
Police officials later managed to take control and sent the protesting students scramming. Owners of the buses that were burnt and damaged registered their protest with the police.
