The joint statement by the Interior Ministry and Prosecutor General's Office said the attack was committed by 29-year-old Georgian citizen Gadirov Farda Asad oglu by Makaron pistol. Gadirov then shot and killed himself with the gun when he saw police approaching.
Aslanova said there is no need to amend any law to up security in higher schools.
"Higher schools have own regulations. The issue must be solved under the regulations," she said.
She said cameras must be installed at the entrance to universities.
"I hope we will not experience such tragedy any more. I think special security measures must be taken in crowded places such as shopping centers and underground stations," Aslanova said.
"Higher educational institutions must be provided with security workers," Great Establishment Party chairman and MP Fazil Mustafa said to Trend .
He said if security system is created, it will be difficult to bring arms to schools. "It is impossible to check everybody, but serious dangers can be prevented," he said.Do you have any feedback? Contact our journalist at [email protected]
