Gunmen have opened fire at a university in Peshawar, a northern city in Pakistan, wounding several people. An eyewitness said he and his colleagues were sleeping when the firing started Geo News reported.

The army and local police who were summoned to the scene killed all the attackers, who arrived at the Agricultural Training Institute on Friday by rickshaw, the military's press wing said.

The injured, including a station house officer (SHO), constable, army soldiers and students, have been shifted to Khyber Teaching Hospital and CMH for treatment. According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), five burqa-clad terrorists stormed the building and resorted to intermittent firing.

The area where the incident occurred is a hub for educational institutions in the city including the University of Peshawar.

The varsity is closed today on account of Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi.


The main Taliban militant group, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, claimed responsibility saying the place they attacked was housing a secret intelligence office.

A security guard and five students are among the dead, the hospital that received the bodies said. The compound includes a hostel facility for diploma students and there were around 100 people there at the time of attack, police said.

Talking to media, Inspector General of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Salahuddin Mehsud confirmed the attack and said that the terrorists will be dealt sternly.

Taliban militants stormed a training institute in Pakistan's northwestern city of Peshawar Friday, as the country marked the birthday of the Prophet Mohammed. "The other student was pressing the wound with his hands to stop the blood and I had to put my hand on his mouth so that he can not scream", he said.

The attack also bore striking similarities to a 2014 Taliban massacre at the army-run school in Peshawar that killed 151 people, mostly schoolchildren.
