Dacoits kill Pakistani teacher who defied their ‘rule’ by going to school in no-go area

| @indiablooms | 20 Mar 2024, 07:39 pm

Dacoits gunned down a school teacher who was travelling on a motorcycle to his school in Pakistan's Kandhkot-Kashomre district on Monday.

The teacher was identified as  Allah Rakhiyo Nandwani.

He was a resident of Khando Khan Nandwani.

He taught at cluster primary school in Nasrullah Khan Bijarani village.

He had recently earned fame and great respect through his videos uploaded on social media in which he expressed his determination to continue to defy bandit-rule by going to the “no-go” area regularly to educate children, reported Dawn News.

Earlier, a video had gone viral where the teacher was seen going to his school with his students with a double barreled gun in his hand.

He said he had taken up the gun in his hand to ensure his safety and he would go to school even at great risk to his life.

The video had appreciation from social media users.

They criticised the police for negligence and failure to save the lives of the general public.

Police rushed to the spot and shifted the body of the teacher to a nearby hospital.

The body was handed over to heirs after completion of medico-legal formalities, police told Dawn News.

Blocking all vehicular movement, family members of the deceased teacher and large number of his supporters placed his body on the Kandhkot-Thull road at Magsi stop to stage their demonstration.

The victim’s brothers, Mithal Nandwani and Moula Bakhsh Nandwani, who led the protest, told Dawn News that no one was safe on roads where highwaymen committed crimes without fear of police and recklessly killed people over resistance.
