Mehsud said six students, a security guard and two civilians were killed in the attack. The arrested suspects have been shifted to a police station and are being interrogated.

He said such attacks, regardless of location, represent evil.

"The DNA samples and fingerprints of the terrorists have also been collected for identification of the terrorists, who probably spent the Thursday night at some nearby place", he added.

The injured have been shifted to nearby Khyber Teaching Hospital.
