PESHAWAR (Dunya News) - The second anniversary of deadly terrorist attack at Bacha Khan University that claimed lives of 21 people is being observed today (Saturday).
Preparations have been completed as the university administration has formed committee for the anniversary event.
On January 20, 2015, around four terrorists entered Bacha Khan University in Charsadda district, roughly 50 kilometres (30 miles) from the city of Peshawar and killed 21 people and injured dozens.
Regional police chief Saeed Wazir told that most of the student victims shot dead at a hostel for boys on the Bacha Khan University campus.
Police, soldiers and special forces had launched a ground and air operation at the university in a bid to shut down the assault claimed by a Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) faction and killed all four attackers.
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.
