Srinagar, Jan. 20 (ANI): Former Jammu and Kashmir DGP M. M. Khajuria on Wednesday dubbed the terrorist attack on the Bacha Khan University a revenge against the Pakistan Army’s claims that they have eliminated Taliban from the country.
“This is a revenge attack against the Pakistan Army to refute its claims that they have eliminated Taliban. By these attacks, they want to convey the message that they are still active in the region and they can attack,” Khajuria told ANI.
“Most probably the attack has been planned by the Tehreek-i-Taliban, I hope they will claim the responsibility also,” he added.
Khajuria also condoled the death of innocent students.
Condemning the attack, the former top cop hit out at Pakistan for supporting the terror outfits.
Khajuria said the moot point here is that Pakistan has to take a call that there is no good or bad terrorist.
“Any form of terrorism has to end. If you show your sympathy towards Jaish and Masood, this acts a morale booster for other terror outfits,” he added.
In Pakistan, heavily-armed terrorists today stormed the university in Pakistan’s restive northwest Khyber- Pakhtunkhwa province and opened indiscriminate fire on students and teachers.
As per latest reports, the security forces have neutralised the armed terrorists inside the campus. At least 21 people have been killed and over 30 others injured in the attack.
Over 3,000 students were present inside the university to mark the death anniversary of Khudai Khidmatgar Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan alias Baacha Khan, who died on January 20, 1988. (ANI)
