KU receives eight e-walkthrough gates from JDC

The Founder of the non-governmental organization (NGO) Jaffriya Disaster Management Cell Welfare Organization, commonly known as JDC Foundation Pakista, Syed Zafar Abbas Jafri on Monday handed over eight electronic walkthrough gates to the acting Registrar of the University of Karachi (KU) Professor Dr Maqsood Ali Ansari as a donation to the campus.

The KU administration has installed three of those e-walk-through gates at the Silver Jubilee Gate, two electronic walk-through gates each at Maskan Gate and Staff Gate and one of the gates was installed at the new administration building.

These e-walk-through gates are handed over to ensure security for students, teaching and non-teaching staff, and other visitors.

After the casualties of the Chinese faculty of Confucius Institute for Chinese Language and Culture University of Karachi (CIUK) during the attack on April 26, security measures were taken including building and repairing university boundary wall, searching at the entrance gates, and installing hi-tech security cameras and a central monitoring room to have better surveillance around the campus as well as the construction of the watchtowers.

It is also proposed to introduce computerized cards for students, faculty, employees, and other staff to improve varsity’s security and ease for regular visitors.
