Govt. schools reopened in Sialkot border villages after two weeks)

SIALKOT: After the two-week long closure , all the closed 129 government schools have been re-opened in the Sialkot border villages along the Sialkot Working Boundary. Two week ago, the district administration of Sialkot had closed these government schools following the unprovoked intensified Indian shelling on these villages.

District Officer Coordination (DOC) Sialkot Malik Abid Hussain Awan told that though these government schools have been re-opened but the attendance of the students remained very thin there in these schools.

He said that most of the Sialkot border villages still have been lying vacated and the uncertainty was still prevailing there, as the people were not returning back to their houses badly shelled by the Indian Border Security Forces (BSF).

He said that the people were reluctant to send their children to the schools due to high fears of resumption of Indian shelling on Sialkot border villages, in this regard.
