Islamabad: The National Assembly Sub-Committee on Federal Education and Professional Training on Tuesday reviewed the issue of encroachments in the Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad.

Chaired by MNA Hamid Hameed, the committee meeting was informed by Vice Chancellor of the Quaid-i-Azam University Dr Muhammad Ali that the Capital Development Authority (CDA) had tried to demolish illegal shops in the university but they're driven away by students.

The committee directed the VC to hold a meeting with the students to find out a peaceful solution to the issue.
