7 teachers were killed in a shooting at an Upper Kurram school.
In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Upper Kurram Tehsil, at least seven teachers were killed, police said Thursday. This was the latest act of violence in the northwestern province.
The teachers were shot in the staff room of the high school in the tehsil, according to the police. All of the teachers were at the building to do their jobs for the test. All of the hospitals in the area have been put on emergency status by the government.
The cops are looking for the killers, but so far they haven’t been able to find them.
After what happened, the current matric exams had to be put off.
In another accident in the same area, a teacher was killed while driving, making the total number of teachers killed in one day eight.
The teacher who was killed in the car, Mohammad Sharif, worked at the same school, the cops said. On Shalozan Road, where the teacher was going, someone shot at him.
President Dr. Arif Alvi said that it is wrong for people who don’t want people to learn to attack teachers.
The head of state condemned the attack and said he was sad that two teachers who were on job were killed.
The president hoped that the suspect would soon be punished the way the law says he or she should be. He also begged for people to move up in heaven and felt sorry for the families of the dead.
