PESHAWAR: A teacher at an all-girls religious school was killed by a woman colleague and two students who accused her of blasphemy, police said Wednesday, the latest murder in the country related to the hugely sensitive issue. The latest incident took place Tuesday in Dera Ismail Khan. Police said two students and a teacher ambushed Safoora Bibi at the main gate of the school and attacked her with a knife and stick.
“She died after her throat was slit,” police official Saghir Ahmed told AFP. The main suspect is a colleague who planned the crime with two nieces studying at the Jamia Islamia Falahul Binaat school, police said.
