Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Lieutenant-General Asim Bajwa is addressing a press conference and is giving details of the January 20 brutal attack on the Bacha Khan University in Charsadda which had claimed at least 21 lives.

Earlier during the day Chief or Army Staff General Raheel Sharif chaired a 'special security meeting' at the Corps Headquarters, Peshawar, according to a statement issued by Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Lieutenant-General Asim Bajwa.

The meeting reviewed operations in Khyber Pahkhtunkhwa and Federally-Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) as well as the `Intelligence Based Operations` (IBOs), Pak-Afghan border management and the progress into the attack on the Bacha Khan University.

The attack was claimed by mastermind of the APS Peshawar attack, Umar Mansoor, of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Geedar group.

A spokesperson from the TTP, Mohammad Khorasani, on the other hand had issued a conflicting statement shortly after Mansoor's claim, in which Khorasani condemned the attack, terming it "against Shariah".

Chief of Army Staff Gen Raheel Sharif later telephoned Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani and shared with him investigation details of of the BKU attack and also asked him to help in tracing the attackers.

General Raheel also shared the details of the attack with Afghan chief executive Abdullah Abdullah and commander of Resolute Support Mission and United States Forces in Afghanistan Gen John Campbell.

The meeting was attended by Corps Commander Peshawar, Director-General (DG) Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant General Rizwan Akhtar, DG Military Intelligence (MI), director general of military operations (DGMO) and DG ISPR among other high-ranking officials of the Pakistan Army.
