Terrorists escape after opening fire outside Pakistan school, students safe: Pakistan media

NEW DELHI: Another tragedy was narrowly averted this morning in Pakistan, after police teams rushed to the spot where two suspected terrorists opened fire as they tried to enter a school in Bahawalnagarin Punjab, The Express Tribune reported.

According to reports, the men opened gunfire as they tried to enter the private school. “However, as heavy contingents of police reached the site, the men escaped,” the newspaper said.

 

It added that all students were safely evacuated from the school and that a school guard was reportedly injured during the gunfire.

The country remains tense after last week’s terrorist attack on a police training centre near Quetta that killed at least 61 security personnel and injured 165 others. Three terrorists entered the New Sariab Police Training College, some 13 kilometres away from Quetta city. They headed straight for the hostel where police recruits were sleeping.
