The matter is now under the investigations of the law enforcing authorities of the country. Let us leave the matter with the authorities to find the real culprits and bring them to book.
Both Zahira and Wesley Colleges have always maintained a high level of mutual relationship and determined to continue the same by training the students to respect & care each other.
Thus, we call upon our students, parents, old boys and the entire fraternity not to resort to any acts that incite violence or animosity which may damage the dignity that has been hitherto espoused by both the schools for the past many years..”
