Security around the University of Engineering and Technology of Lahore was put on high alert by police after the university in Lahore received a threatening letter from the Deobandis-Wahhabis of takfiri militant group DAISH (ISIS or ISIL).


The letter threatened to attack the university with a suicide attack or a series of bombings, according to a police officer. And UET public relations officer Dr Tanvir Qasim confirmed the letter had been received via posted mail. However, he said the contents of the letter were unknown to him.

UET sources claim the letter was received from unknown sources claiming to be from DAISH, threatening to attack hotels and the university campus after which security within the UET campus was put on high alert.

DIG Lahore Dr Haider Ashraf said security around the university has been increased with increased patrolling and checkpoints. He said a search operation will be launched in the UET hostels to sweep-check the premises.

However, he added that the letter could be a hoax, but this can only be ascertained after an investigation. DIG Ashraf said till then, the threat would be taken seriously. The Civil Lines Police Division has also been asked to remain alert.

It also not the first time that Lahore has come under the threat of IS presence. In November last year, Lahore police launched a manhunt to find men who either belonged to takfiri DAISH, or those who aspired to be in that outfit after pamphlets, posters and stickers of ISIL were distributed and plasted on the boundary wall in parts of the city.

Further, agencies have issued a list of various universities that are under threat.
