3 girl students hurt in Kurram acid attack

PARACHINAR: Three university students were critically hurt when unidentified extremists threw acid at their faces while they were on their way to home on a Parachinar-bound passenger vehicle after taking their MA, MSc examinations in Kohat.

Other passengers present in the vehicle also suffered minor burn injuries. The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed the responsibility for the attack.

The injured girls and other wounded people were shifted to Kurram Agency Headquarters Hospital.

Local people, civil society and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working for women rights condemned the attack and termed it a cowardly act. They demanded the government and law-enforcement agencies to arrest the attackers and award them exemplary punishment.

TTP spokesperson in Kurram Agency, Qari Muhavia, over a telephone, told local journalists his outfit was behind the acid attack. He said in their presence, no girl in the tribal agency could get education. Earlier this week, Malala Yousafzai, a student and a worker, who campaigned for women right to education, was attacked by unidentified terrorists in Swat.

She is still on a ventilator in the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology (AFIC) in Rawalpindi.
