Civil military leadership sit together to review NAP

ISLAMABAD:Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif preside a high-level meeting in Islamabad to review the National Action Plan (NAP) against terrorism, TheNewsTribe.com reported.

Meeting was called to probe into attack on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda where civil and military leaders including Army Chief General Raheel Sharif and Interior Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan attend  meeting.

Earlier, Bacha Khan University attacked by the gunmen last week has demanded the government arm its staff as it seeks to boost security after the deadly assault in which 21 people were killed.

“We have demanded weapons from the government and weapons licenses for all teachers and management officials,” Bacha Khan university registrar Hamidullah Khan told AFP.

Authorities at the university in Charsadda have also called for police checkpoints both inside and outside the campus and watch towers to protect students, he said.

Attack in Charsadda saw heavily-armed militants storm the campus, gunning down students and teachers in a bloody rampage before they were killed by the military.
