BANNU/PESHAWAR, Oct 31: Three headless bodies were found in Bannu district while a school was blown up by suspected militants in Peshawar on Monday.

Police said that the headless bodies of three persons were found on Indus Highway in the limits of Domail police station. “We bring the bodies to district headquarters hospital for postmortem.

The Domail police registered a case and started investigation.

Meanwhile, suspected militants blew up a primary school in Adezai on the suburbs of Peshawar early on Monday, police said.

An official of Matani police station told Dawn that terrorists planted two improvised explosive devices at the main pillars of the building and detonated them through remote control at about 1:30am.

He said that each of the bombs was about two kilograms that destroyed the school building. Police launched a search operation in the area but so far no one had been arrested, he added.
