Almost unregulated crossing at Torkham a security challenge


TORKHAM: Days before the deadly attack on Bacha Khan University Campus in Charsadda, four militants, in groups of twos, quietly crossed the regular border-crossing at Torkham, without any checks or hindrances, security officials have confirmed.

“Had there been a proper system there, at least two of them would have been caught there and then. The whole plot would have been unearthed before they could carry out the attack,” a senior security official said.
