With a strong resolve to not be gagged by threats from terrorists, Peshawar's Army Public School reopened for educational activities along with other institutions in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and other parts of the country.

Soldiers were positioned with sophisticated weapons on roof tops and all around the institute's premises. Military vehicles were patrolling along the outer wall cordons which have now been raised to more than 10 feet high and have had barbed wires fixed on top. High zoom cameras have also been installed at several points.
