National

January 9, 2015

ISLAMABAD: The Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) has tasked the Pakistan-Public Works Department (Pak-PWD) with estimating how much the strict security checks at Islamabad’s government schools and colleges will cost.
The CADD will bear the expenses of the measures to be taken for the security of educational institutions, Minister of State for CADD Barrister Usman Ibrahim told the participants of a meeting here on Thursday.
The minister asked the Pak-PWD representatives, who were in attendance, to submit a report on the estimate for the proposed work to him at the earliest possible. He also asked the senior joint secretary and the FDE chief and director (estate management) to visit all schools and colleges to see security arrangements and submit a report to him. The federal government schools and colleges in the city were closed on December 26 on account of winter vacation.
However, their reopening was later delayed for many times on security grounds. As announced by the CADD, schools and colleges are to open on January 12. During the meeting, the participants decided that the division would ask police for patrolling around schools and colleges at their opening and closing hours, while the school management committees would meet to arrange for guards by raising funds.
