FAISALABAD: A threatening script on the walls of a girls school in the outskirts Faisalabad has caused panic among the inhabitants of the area, including teachers and parents of the students.

The script, allegedly posted by an unidentified group, warned the Government Girls High School Chak No241-RB Chinchal Singh Wala against commencing classes from January 26, saying it will be blown up if authorities did not take heed of it.

“We received a complaint from the headmistress, saying some students informed her about the threatening script written on the school wall,” SHO Thikriwala police station Ghulam Asghar told The Express Tribune on Sunday.

The police officer said the headmistress had requested the police to provide security to the school and ensure the safety of its students and the faculty.

“We have registered a case under Section 506 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) against unidentified terrorists,” said the SHO.
