Bacha Khan University (BKU) in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s Charsadda district reopened on Monday after a 26-day hiatus owing to security concerns following a terror attack on campus.
On January 20, militants rampaged BKU leaving 21 dead and shattering the sense of security in the troubled northwest, a year after Pakistan’s deadliest extremist attack — a 2014 assault on a school in nearby Peshawar.
Earlier on Friday, a security review committee meeting at the university decided that the educational institution will reopen on February 15 (today). The meeting was held under the chair of BKU Vice Chancellor Fazal Raheem Marwat.
According to the university’s media and public relations officer, Saeed Khan Khalil, the boundary walls of the university have been raised as directed by security agencies.
