Pakistan varsity to monitor 'suspected elements'

Islamabad, Jan 11 (IANS) A university in Pakistan's Peshawar city will set up a quick response team to monitor the movement of "suspected elements" on the campus following two blasts that recently rocked the institute, a media report said.

Due to the prevailing security situation in northwest Pakistan, the management of the University of Peshawar and students decided at a meeting to install close circuit cameras at designated places within the university, the Dawn reported.

The university has also set up a central control room, and asked students to report to it any suspicious movement on the campus.

The daily said that recently, two terrorism incidents -- a blast in the geology department and another in the administrative block -- had exposed the lack of security at the university.
