Islamabad, Oct 27 (IANS) Believe it or not, a government primary school in Pakistan’s Rawalpindi city is run at a graveyard. And the school shuts whenever a body is brought for burial.

The school has no toilet and no facility for drinking water, the News International reported Tuesday. So students go to neighbourhood houses if and when they feel thirsty.

District education officer Naseem Akhtar said the Government M.G. Girls Primary School could get no other land where it could be located.

“We have to give holiday to the students whenever a body is brought here for funeral prayers,” she said.
