Hangu: Road blocked to protest teachers’ murder
HANGU: Protesters on the call of the All Teachers Association blocked the Hangu-Kohat road for several hours and staged a sit-in against the killing of two primary school teachers on Friday.
“We will boycott schools for the next four days,” the teachers said and demanded arrest of the killers without delay.
Two primary school teachers Hassan Mohammad and Muyasir Ali were killed by unidentified criminals two days earlier in the Bara Abbaskhel area of Hangu.
The protesting teachers took to the streets to lodge a protest against the gory incident and demanded of the authorities to order probe into the incident otherwise they would continue their protest.
Shahidullah Orakzai, president of the teachers’ body, demanded of the police to include the EDO in the investigation, urging the authorities concerned to compensate family members of the deceased teachers.
The teachers dispersed peacefully after assurance by the DCO and district nazim that the culprits would be arrested and brought to justice soon. The police had lodged an FIR against a suspected person and started investigations.
