Badbher: Militants blow up one more school
PESHAWAR: As reported by the Dawn News on Saturday, suspected militants blew up another government-run primary school for boys at Mera Balarzi, a suburban village in the limits of Badbher police station, here on Friday night. A police official said that the explosives, planted by militants at the building, went off at about 11pm and damaged two classrooms of the school. He said that another explosive device, weighing six kilograms, was defused in the same area.
SHO Abdul Qadir said that police beefed up security in the area and movement of suspected elements was thoroughly checked both on main and link roads. “But the area is so vast that militants can manage to enter the main population,” he added. He said that all the beat officials had been directed to keep vigilance on the movement of the supporters of militants. He said that a case against unidentified militants had been registered.
It was the ninth school, which was blown up during the past two months on the suburbs of Peshawar. Earlier, militants blew up schools at Mashokhel, Shaikhan, Charkhakhel, Mathra, Arbab Landi, Palosai, Mashogagar and Sulemankhel. Most of them were girl schools.
