Attack At Kabul University Claims 13, Suspicions On Pak-Based Groups, University Remains Closed

While Pakistan has agreed to extend its helping hand and has also initiated a search operation along the border near Chaman to trace the suspects related to the attack, the Inter-Services Public Relations of Pakistan issued a statement saying that there was no technical evidence as of yet to back Afghanistan’s claims.

The SIM cards used during the attack were apparently owned and operated by an Afghan company whose signals occasionally affect the border regions.

The US government has pledged full support to the investigations through its embassy in Kabul. Secretary of state John Kerry condemned the attack in very strong terms, telling that such terror tactics would never succeed in pushing back those who wanted to move forward in life.

While the campus remains closed for security reasons and all official work suspended except at the provincial offices, work has already begun inside to repair the damage sustained during the attacks. And the University is to reopen at the earliest possible chance.
