The varsity is deeply saddened over this tragic incident, sympathises with the bereaved families and prays to the Almighty to grant courage and fortitude to the members of the bereaved families to bear this irreparable loss and rest the departed souls in eternal peace. The nation should stand in solidarity with those who are fighting terrorism and offering sacrifices for eliminating this menace.
