KABUL, June 19 (Xinhua) — Several armed militants entered the compound of Kandahar University in south Afghanistan Friday and after beheading a student took away another.
“The gruesome incident occurred at 11:00 a.m. local time when several unknown armed militants entered the compound while students were enjoying weekly holiday (Friday) in the garden of university and horribly beheaded Mushtaq Ahmad and took away another,” Ahmad Shah a student of the university told Xinhua.
The terrified Shah added that Mushtaq was a student of grade fourth of medical faculty of Kandahar university.
This is the first time that militants attack higher educational institutions in the country.
Police officials at the site did not put finger at any particular groups, saying the enemies of peace a term used against Taliban militants are behind such barbaric acts.
Taliban fighters who have vowed to intensify activities this year in Afghanistan have not made comment so far.
