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 deceased were identified with the help of national identify cards in their pockets,” they added.

The deceased were identified as Maulana Qari Hussain Ahmed, a resident of Sarai Naurang, Sirajud Din of Shabakkhel Lakki Marwat and Noor Rehman, a resident of Serkot area of Miramshah in North Waziristan Agency.

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.

Adezai Qaumi Lashkar deputy chief Fazal Malik, when contacted, said that it was the last school in the area to be destroyed. About 12 schools in the area had been blown up so far, he added.

“Basically it was a school for boys but girl students had also been shifted here after destruction of their schools in the locality,” he said.

Mr Malik said that militants were still present in the surrounding localities and were capable to attack the pro-government people.
