Rawalpindi - A female teacher has been running from pillar to post to get clauses of terrorism act inserted in the first information report lodged by her at police station Chontra.

The teacher had narrowly escaped an armed attack launched by her ex-husband when she was teaching in Government Primary School Pind Malhu on May 23, 2015.

Talking to The Nation yesterday, teacher Shaista Bibi said that she got married with Wasim Javed 20 years ago and gave birth to four children. “Now we have separated after a court decision,” she said. She said that she was teaching her students when her ex-husband stormed into the school at 12:55pm and started firing at her. “The attack was horrible.

Bullets drilled the door of classroom and pierced into wall missing me and a child who tried to shut the door after seeing the attacker,” she added. The firing incident also terrorised other teachers and students. “I have become a shuttlecock among the offices of senior police officers for the last three months but nobody is giving me justice,” the teacher said. She said it was a terror incident as it terrified all the people present in the school. She urged police bosses to insert 7ATA, a clause of terror act, in the first information report. “The regional police officer has directed the deputy superintendent of police to look into the matter and insert 7ATA in the case,” she informed.

“I have received application marked by the RPO Office and has moved it to the deputy superintendent of police (legal) for his comments,” said DSP Sajid Gondal, when contacted.

DSP (Legal) Raja Azmat Hayyat, while chatting with The Nation, said that he would forward the application of the female teacher to district prosecutor who would look into matter and would reply to legal branch of police whether or not 7ATA could be inserted in the case.

Top legal mind Sardar Asmat Ullah Khan, when contacted, said that this was terrorism as the teachers and students had been terrorised due to firing. “The police must insert terrorism act in the FIR and give an exemplary punishment to the attacker,” he added.
