Institute in Peshawar to re-open following Taliban's deadly December attack
PESHAWAR -- The Agriculture Training Institute in Peshawar is reopening after a deadly terrorist attack in December, Dawn reported.
Five Taliban militants stormed the institute December 1, killing nine people and wounding more than 30. The attackers were killed.
The institute, now renamed the Agriculture Services Academy, will resume academic activities Tuesday (February 6), according to a notification issued by Principal Zulfiqar Ali.
The academy has hired three former service members and bought four shotguns and is waiting for gun permits from the provincial government, said an unnamed school official.
The school has sought funds to install closed-circuit TV cameras and to build a security wall, among other security measures.
