Pakistan University attack: NSUI holds candle vigil in Delhi

New Delhi: The National Student Union of India (NSUI) on Wednesday took out a candle march on Wednesday to show solidarity with the victims of the deadly terror attack on the Bacha Khan University in Pakistan and called for the student body across the nation to raise their voice against the attack.

“It is very unfortunate what has happened in Pakistan. Any act of terrorism is an attack on humanity and we condemn it in the strongly possible way and especially attacking an educational institute and killing innocent students shows what these terrorists are capable of. We need to unite against these incidents and raise our voices especially among students,” an NSUI student told ANI.

Earlier, Prime Minister Modi strongly condemned the terror attack at the Pakistani university and offered his condolences to families of the deceased.

Security forces have ended a gun and bomb attack on a university in north-west Pakistan in which 19 people were killed and 17 injured.

Four suspected attackers also died in a battle that lasted nearly three hours at Bacha Khan University in Charsadda. (ANI)
