Beating, drugs on campus

The video going viral is horrifying: a group of girls has pinned a girl and is hitting her while smiling. The characters in the terrible clips are said to be from a private school in Lahore’s posh neighbourhood. Viewers gave the clip negative feedback, while the father of the battered girl reported the incident. On Saturday, a Lahore sessions court granted pre-arrest bail to the three schoolgirls included in the police complaint. According to the authorities, the leading suspect was a drug addict who had offered the victim a dose of a substance to inhale at school, which she declined, and as a result, she was severely tormented. The victim was kicked in the face by one of the girls, who was also a boxer and was also struck in the face by another girl. The videotape was enough proof to file a lawsuit against the attackers.

According to the other side’s statements, the girl who was the victim is also a drug addict. The problem appears to be related to drugs, and there have long been discussions about drugs in educational settings.

It should be mentioned that Punjab’s Chief Minister, Chaudhry Pavez Elahi, expressed alarm over the rising trend of drug use at the province’s educational institutions in September 2022. Parvez Elahi announced that, shortly, penalties for buying and selling drugs in educational institutions will include a minimum sentence of two years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison. In the meeting, it was determined to pass laws to forbid such practices in Punjab educational institutions and to ensure that rigorous legislation would be put in place to prevent drug usage in educational facilities. A separate organisation and anti-narcotics police stations would be established, it was also announced during the meeting, to eradicate drugs from educational institutions. The government has gone with unmet pledges, while drugs still rule schools and colleges.
