Naveen condemns Taliban attack in Pak school

Bhubaneswar: Terming the attack by Taliban militants in a Peshawar school as a “barbaric act,” Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today sought severe punishment for the terrorists.

“Severest punishment should be meted out to those responsible for this barbaric act,” Patnaik told reporters here.

“I am totally horrified by this incident,” he said while condemning the terror attack.

In the bloodiest terror attack in Pakistan in years, at least 160 people, mostly children, were today killed by heavily-armed Taliban suicide bombers who stormed an army-run school here and took several hostages.
