Five suspects of Charsadda university attack arrested
The intelligence agencies captured suspects in Charsadda who are said to be belonging to Mohmand Agency area.
They said the suspects were involved in facilitating and planning the university attack that claimed 21 lives yesterday (January 20).
Gunmen armed with grenades and Kalashnikovs stormed a university in Charsadda on Wednesday leaving at least 21 dead, in an attack with all the same hallmarks of a 2014 massacre at a nearby Peshawar school.
Security forces killed all four attackers in an assault claimed by a Pakistani Taliban faction but branded “un-Islamic” by the umbrella group’s leadership, who vowed to hunt down those responsible.
Security forces said the young attackers had hidden in fields surrounding the Bacha Khan university in the northwestern town of Charsadda, taking advantage of fog that severely restricted visibility to enter the premises unnoticed.
