Staff Reporter


Despite being in perfect working condition, the closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras could not capture the terrorist attack on Agriculture Training Institute (ATI) that killed at least nine people in Peshawar on Friday.
ATI Vice-Principal Kamal Khattak on Sunday cited absence of hard drive in a computer attached to the CCTV system as the reason behind no camera footage of the deadly attack.He said all surveillance cameras were in perfect working condition but the Friday’s attack could not be captured due to absence of hard drive that stores data in computer. An investigation was launched immediately after the attack to ascertain terrorists’ linkage with their counterparts in Afghanistan as said by the military’s media wing.
