Mardan attack: Security heightened at girls educational institutions

PESHAWAR: Security at all girls’ educational institutions has been put on high alert across Mardan district, following Tuesday’s grenade attack on the Government Girls’ Degree College Landkhwar, Mardan which left 35 students injured.

DCO Mardan, Mohammad Shah told The Express Tribune that police personnel have been deployed at all girls’ educational institutions across the district. Shah said the investigators were working on the case, but declined to give details saying it would be premature to comment on it at this stage.

Meanwhile, an official on the condition of anonymity told The Express Tribune that nearly all the students of the college remained absent on Wednesday. He said that the college was not properly secure and prior to the attack, had only three guards deployed there, that too without weapons.
