The resulting blast damaged four rooms of the facility as well as the boundary wall of the school. The school’s watchman got trapped under the debris but was later rescued by the local people.

Law enforcement agencies cordoned off the area and launched a search operation to catch those responsible for the attack.

    In fact,
    they want to keep deprive females from modern education
    notwithstanding the fact that Islam provide equal opportunities
    to male and females in the field of education.

    I believe these militants don’t have a solid reason why girls can’t have equal opportunities of education. Islam allows both girls and boys to get educated. They use explosives and IEDs to destroy schools, because people don’t endorse their beliefs and this way they prove that they are powerful.
