PESHAWAR (Web Desk) – Khyber Pakhtukhwa Chief Minister (CM) Pervez Khattak on Friday visited family of Hamid Hussain, the martyred professor of Charsadda tragedy, in Sawabi to offer his condolence.

As per details, family of the professor started protest on Khattak’s arrival, demanding strict security measures across the province. The angry family brought little children of Hamid Hussain before the CM and asked him to give them justice. They demanded Khattak to resign from the office and “stop playing with the lives of innocent people”.

At least 21 people died in an armed assault on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda, about 50 kilometres (30 miles) from the city of Peshawar, where witnesses reported two large explosions as security forces moved in under dense fog to halt the bloodshed.

Meanwhile, police have registered 35 First Information Reports (FIRs) against various institutions in Peshawar just two days after a barbaric attack on Charsadda’s Bacha Khan University killed at least 21 people.

Police, acting under the National Action Plan (NAP), registered FIRs against 32 schools, two non-governmental organisations and a National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) sub-office for possessing inadequate security, a police official said.
