A teacher at a government school in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) was injured when a ceiling fan fell on her during a class session, as reported by ARY News. The incident, captured on video, took place at Government Girls Primary School in Peshawar’s Chugal Pura area while the teacher was teaching. The teacher was quickly taken to a nearby private hospital by school staff after the incident. The sudden fall of the fan caused panic among the students, who screamed and fled in distress.

SDO Education Shamim Akhtar commented on the incident, stating that the school building, which dates back to 1916, is in poor condition. “We have submitted a report to the Education Department, but unfortunately, no action has been taken yet, leaving the children studying in hazardous conditions,” she added.

In another incident on May 10, an explosion occurred at a private girls’ school in the North Waziristan tribal district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, according to Dawn. The explosion, reportedly triggered by unidentified militants, occurred at night. Police sources stated that the militants first tortured the school’s watchman and then blew up two rooms of the building. Fortunately, there were no injuries or loss of life in the explosion.

Last year in May, two government girls’ schools in Mirali, a town in Pakistan, experienced similar attacks with no casualties, as per Dawn. Around 500 girls were enrolled in the two schools, Government Girls Middle School Noor Jannat and Government Girls Middle School Yunus Kot, which were targeted by attackers around midnight. These schools were the only private girls’ educational facilities in the area and had previously received multiple threat letters.
