LAHORE :After Karachi’s tragic incident in which three Chinese faculty members lost their lives, Punjab University administration has beefed up security around its international hostel housing Chinese teachers.

The University of Engineering & Technology (UET) Lahore has also tighten security for its Chinese faculty members at the university’s China Desk.

On the other hand, PU administration has also called a meeting of police and law enforcement agencies on Wednesday  to review the security arrangements for around 20 Chinese faculty members at the university’s New Campus. Like Karachi University, PU also has a Confucius Institute where Chinese faculty teaches a number of Chinese language courses. Unlike PU, the UET has a China Desk under which two Chinese teachers are engaged in teaching language courses at the university. According to PU website, Confucius Institute is a non-profit public educational organisation affiliated with the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China whose aim is to promote Chinese language and culture, support local Chinese teaching internationally, and facilitate cultural exchanges.
