MINGORA, Jan 26: Militants in Swat blew up another school and at least seven people were killed and several others injured as violence continued on Monday.

It may be mentioned that the authorities issued shoot at sight orders on Sunday for curfew violations in Nengolai, Bara, Koza Banadai, Shakar Dara and Charbagh after the local chapter of the banned Tehrik-i-Taliban had issued a list of 40 people — among them ministers, members of the national and provincial assemblies, leaders of the ANP, PPP and PML-Q and local government functionaries — they wanted to appear in their ‘court’.

Two people were killed in Manglawar when a shell hit their houses. Ten people, among them children and a woman, were injured when a shell hit their house in Charbagh. A civilian was shot dead for violating curfew in Charbagh.

Local people reported having seen four bullet-ridden bodies in fields in Nengolai area of Kabal, but could not remove them because of curfew.

Most of the people named in the list said they would never appear before any illegal ‘court’ and were not scared of the threat. “We are ready to render any sacrifice and do anything required to protect the life and property of our people,” a leader said.
