KP student confesses to killing college principal over blasphemy dispute

SHABQADAR: A grade 12 student, Faheem, of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Islamia College in Shabqadar, who allegedly gunned down the principal of the college, Sareer, on the pretext of ‘blasphemy’, has confessed to the crime.
The student got disgruntled after the principal had expressed his anger at Faheem over his absence from the college for three days due to latter’s reported participation in Faizabad sit-in.
The city police said that the accused fired six bullets at principal Sareer. As a result of firing, the principal was critically injured and rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his wounds. According to initial reports shared on social media, the student said he had “no remorse over killing the principal”.
In his confessional statement, the student stated that the principal reprimanded him when he returned to college from the sit-in for being absent for a few days.
He admitted that he shot the principal to death and expressed regret over his criminal act.
Faheem has been sent to jail on judicial remand after completion of his physical remand.
In November, daily life in the capital had been paralysed for at least three weeks due to the protest of an alliance of religious parties, including the Tehreek-e-Khatm-e-Nabuwwat, Tehreek Labaik Ya Rasool Allah and Sunni Tehreek Pakistan, calling for the sacking of then law minister Zahid Hamid and strict action against those behind the amendment to the Khatam-e-Nabuwwat clause ─ which had earlier been deemed a “clerical error” and subsequently rectified.
The protest was finally ended when the government had succumbed to the demands of the violent protesters and had agreed to remove then law minister Zahid Hamid.
