Vice-Chancellor Fazal Rahim Marwat received students as they entered the campus located in Charsadda town amid tight security, media reported. "We are satisfied with the security arrangements at the campus," Marwat said.

The first day of resumption of academic activities aims to relieve students of the 'psychological trauma they underwent', the vice chancellor said, adding that special lectures would be delivered in this regard.

BKU spokesperson Saeed Khan said that security arrangements for studies to resume at varsity are 'complete'. However, watchtowers are yet to be installed.

Khan said the watchtowers will be installed at a distance of 100 metres at the campus. The varsity administration had decided a week after the attack that academic activities on campus will not commence until provision of adequate security was ensured.

The spokesperson on Friday said the university's security committee, after a thorough review, cleared the varsity for resumption of academic activities. But students and staff would not use university transport, he said at the time.
