According to the reporters, a Pakistani University which was been attacked by the Taliban last month had been reopened on Monday guarded by hundreds of police officers, highlighting a pervasive atmospheric of fear after the Islamist group vowed more strikes on the schools.
As reported on 20 January not less than 21 people had lost their lives including the teachers and the students when the gunmen stormed the Bacha Khan University in the north western town of Charsadda.
As said by the vice chancellor Fazal Rahim Marwat, “I am very happy to announce that the university has been reopened today but amid very strict security to defeat the mindset of the militants.”
He added that special lectures had been planned by the Bacha Khan University to relieve the students of the psychological trauma and begin their normal studies. The university had given the security clearance and on the premises of university eight policemen will be stationed and a mobile van will be deployed outside.
To keep an eye on the female students, four female students had been tasked, as said by the Charsadda district police officer Sohail Khan.
