Over 500 students were booked for vandalism and arson during a protest outside a private university in Lahores' Johar Town on Wednesday.

According to the police, at least 500 students have been named in the case registered at Nawab Town police station.

The case was registered on the request submitted by the security in-charge of the private university, Geo News reported.

The students have been demanding to conduct the examinations virtually after online classes.

A day earlier, several private university students sustained injuries after they engaged in clashes with security guards during demonstrations against in-person examinations.

Students were present outside the university located on Jinnah Road in Johar Town since morning.

The students of the private university reached the educational institute's main gate where they chanted slogans against the administration.
