Srinagar: Amid a spree of burning of at least 28 schools across Kashmir during the on-going unrest, police is still clueless and not a single culprit has either been named or arrested so far.
Some of the building gutted in government forces action but most of the schools were set on fire by what people call them ‘organized gang’. This mysteries gang is active in Central, North and South Kashmir and on daily basis the members of the gang are setting one or two school building on fire. “The remarks made by police that they can’t secure all the school buildings have apparently emboldened the miscreants involved in such acts. One fails to understand what police is doing and why this organized gang is not being exposed,” said Ghulam Mohammad, a teacher. “This is the height of inefficiency especially when the police is adamant in apprehending stone pelters.”
Some of the schools which has gutted in the fire are High School Kanipora in Kukgam zone, High School Katrasoo and Higher Secondary School Bugam in Yaripora zone and Middle School Watoo in zone D H pora, Middle School Kanjikelam in Yaripora zonhe of Kulgam district, Government High School Botego (zone Anantnag), Government High School Parigam (zone Kakpora), Government High School Lilam in zone Vilgam Kupwara, Girls High School Ompora (zone Budgam), High School Kawoosa Khalisa (Zone Narbal) and Boys High School Aripathan (zone Beerwah), Government Middle School and primary wing of Girls High School in zone Vehil of district Shopian, Government Higher Secondary School Sumbhal (zone Sumbhal), High School Theeru (zone Tulmullah) in Ganderbal district, Middle School Palpore and Middle School Checkseri (zone Nehalpora) Baramulla, Government Middle School in Bunpora area of Saderkoot, historic Islamia Hanfia Educational Institute Lal Chowk in Anantnag district, Noor-ul-Huda Educational Institute Zewan Srinagar, Jawahar Navodya Vidalya School Ashmuqam.
