Kulgam:During the dead of the night, unidentified masked men set Government Higher Secondary School building on fire in Bugam area of South Kashmir’s Kulgam district.
A few days back, locals had foiled the attempt of masked men when they tried to set the same building on fire in the area. That time, according to local.s Chowkidar of the School had sounded an alarm while people had given a hot chase to the arsonists.
“This time we failed to save this temple of learning. We fail to understand who these people are who set ablaze these school buildings across Kashmir. The matter should be probed,” Ghulam Rasool an elderly Bugam resident said.
Officials said that the building has gutted completely. “We have registered a case and investigation has been taken up,” said a police official.
