JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Unidentified gunmen have torched a school’s lab and its documents in the Momand Dara district of eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Sunday.

Mohammad Asif Shinwari, provincial educationinfo-icon department spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that masked gunmen torched some parts of a school in the district late on Saturday night.

He said the gunmen initially tied up the hands of the watchmen and then collected all documents and torched them in a lab room. Parts of the lab also torched, he added.

Shinwari urged security organs to arrest the criminals and bring them to justice in order to prevent such incidents in the future. Zartaj Gardiwal, a resident of the areas confirmed the arson.

Governor Gulab Mangal has directed concerned authorities to take action against individuals involved in the torching of school, according to a statement.

This was the third incident of burning the school in Momandara in recent times.
