A sixth grade boy was killed outside a private school in Islamabad after a security guard accidentally shot him on Wednesday. 

The school is located within the jurisdiction of the Nilore police station.

The boy was killed when a school guard, who was reportedly cleaning his shotgun, accidentally fired a shot. The guard, identified as Jameel, has been taken into custody.

The police are investigating the incident.

Saeed, the deceased student, was immediately taken to a hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.

An eyewitness said he heard the sound of a gunshot and rushed to see what happened. He said the student kept crying in pain for over 10-15 minutes and instead of providing a vehicle to take the child to a hospital, the school administration closed its gates.

The parents of the boy staged a protest outside the school along with his body.

    And they call themselves human ? Mention the name of the school. And the security guard, accidently fired while cleaning his gun. Now come on, how many guns are cleaned on a daily basis in Islamabad alone ?

    Where is the accountability?
    Have the family of the deceased been contacted?
    How much compensation will the family of the deceased get?
    What action is being taken to ensure this doesn’t happen to any other child?
