Govt school bombed, another bomb defused in Charsadda

CHARSADDA: Militants blew up a government boys high school with explosives on Friday. The Bomb Disposal Unit (BDU) foiled the terror bid by defusing another bomb near the scene. The police said that unidentified miscreants planted explosives in the government-run boys high school located in Atokey Sheikhano area of Shabqar Tehsil in Charsadda. A major portion of the school building was destroyed as a result of the explosion but no casualties were reported as the building was vacant and was situated far from the residential area. Meanwhile, BDU personnel recovered and defused another remote-controlled bomb weighing five kilogrammes near the scene of explosion and claimed that the bomb was planted to target the police, which was to be detonated as the police officials reach the scene but timely action foiled a major terror attempt. The police have registered a case against unidentified miscreants and an investigation was in progress.
