The recent arrest of an individual for his alleged involvement in harassing female students of the University of Karachi while they were travelling in a van is just one manifestation of a larger issue that demands immediate action. The reported incident, where the suspect committed obscene acts while chasing a van carrying female students, has sent shockwaves through the university community. Incidents like these not only compromise the safety and well-being of our female students but also contribute to a pervasive atmosphere of fear and anxiety on campus. The viral video of the incident on social media has rightly sparked public outrage, emphasizing the urgent need for a comprehensive response.

While applauding the efforts of the police in apprehending the suspect, it is crucial for the university administration to collaborate with law enforcement to ensure a thorough investigation. Additionally, proactive measures, such as increased campus security and awareness campaigns, must be implemented to create a safer environment for all students.
