GUJRAT: The administration of a girls high school in Dinga town have found some leaflets carrying a school closure warning from the militant Islamic State group.

However, personnel of Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) say the hand-written pamphlets might be a move of some naughty students to create panic. But the matter is being thoroughly probed.

Reports said when the school was opened on Jan 5, the management found some pamphlets bearing a hand-written warning, “We are the followers of Osama Bin Laden, so close the school otherwise you will be responsible for any loss to 1,000 students.”

The school management informed the local police about the matter and a contingent of Elite Force commandos cordoned of the area. The LEAs thoroughly examined the school building.

Dinga police have lodged a case No. 11 against some unidentified people under section 506 of the PPC and started investigation.

A senior LEAs official told Dawn that it looked like a naughty move by some students of the school because the warning was written by hand on some answer sheets of the examinations “but it would never be taken lightly and the issue would be probed.”

The intelligence agencies have already warned the respective authorities of possible presence of some anti-state elements in Gujrat district where the LEAs had arrested some key militants and some alleged militants were killed during encounters with local police during the last one and a half years.http://www.dawn.com/news/1231297/is-threat-leaflets-found-in-girls-school
