Enraged protestors torch police post after principal's murder

Aug 23, 2015 - 16:29

CHARIKAR (Pajhwok): Enraged protesters torched a security post after a school principal was killed by unidentified gunmen in Bagram district of central Parwan province on Sunday, an official said.

Unidentified motorcyclists opened fire on Dad Khuda Jahish, the principal of Shahid Sher Aqa School, leaving him dead and a student wounded in the district before noon today.

The students of the school and hundreds of Bagram residents took to the street and blocked Kabul-Bagram highway.

Parwan Education Department Director, Zalmai Shaheed told Pajhwok Afghan News that Jahish was killed and a student was wounded by two armed motorcyclists.

He said that the health condition of the wounded was stable.

The incident, he said took place around 100 meters away from a police post but police could not chase the attackers. Jahish who served 20 years in education had no personal enmity with anyone, Shaheed said, urging relevant organs to take the perpetrators to justice.

He added that protesters torched a security post and the rally was still underway.
