ISLAMABAD - The cops are still reluctant to vacate all educational institutions of the federal capital despite hue and cry made by students, parents and teachers against the occupation, besides repeated reminders from education managers and show cause notice from court.

Still three educational institutions are being used for police personnel, though six more schools and colleges were vacated on Thursday. Now three colleges namely Islamabad Model College for Boys (IMCB) F-7/3, IMCB F-8/4 and IMCB G-6/2 are being used by police. The Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Administration informed the Federal Directorate of Education officials that the remaining three institutions would also be vacated by Friday (today).

Earlier, the Islamabad High Court had ordered the city administration to vacate the educational institutions by September 23 for immediate resumption of classes. The cops on Wednesday last reoccupied some colleges, which were earlier partially vacated by them. The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has also issued a show cause notice to inspector general of Islamabad police and secretary interior for prolonged summer vacations in educational institutions.

The students were protesting against the prolonged closure of the institutions and the Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) had also sent reminders to ICT administration for evacuation of schools and colleges.

The cops who were called in the wake of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) sit-ins have been residing in educational institutions since the first week of August last.

The students of Islamabad Model College for Girls (IMCG) F-7/2 also gathered on Thursday to register their disquiet against occupation of police on their instituion; however, on seeing the policemen shifting their luggage they resorted to disperse peacefully. The college is among one of the six institutions vacated on Thursday. Classes will be resumed after cleanup operation, said the officials.
