Pakistan's Punjab University (PU) vice-chancellor has claimed that the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami is harbouring militants in the university hostels.

Dr Mujahid Kamran said illegal occupants of Islami Jamiat Talba (IJT) were living in PU hostels and he has accepted his failure to keep the hostels free of notorious elements, the Express Tribune reports.

Pakistan intelligence agencies had recently arrested a suspect from the PU hostel and he was believed to be an associate of al Qaeda, the report added.

However, IJT Punjab southern nazim and IJT nazim of PU have refuted the vice-chancellor's claim and accused him of trying to defame Jamiat to hide his own inefficiency.
