APS victims’ parents protest in Islamabad

Parents of victims of Army Public School (APS) organized a protest in Islamabad in an offer to press the central government for a legal investigation into the December 2014 terrorist attack.

Around 150 children were killed when Taliban gunmen stormed APS. The attack, one of the deadliest in the country’s history, led to a nationwide crackdown on militants across Pakistan under the National Action Plan (NAP).

A few groups of the casualties demand that the government arrange a legal investigation into the assault.

After a progression of dissents in Peshawar in the course of the last one a half year, many groups of the casualties focalized on Islamabad and required a meeting with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Islamabad organization attempted to induce the demonstrators to end their dissent, however they declined to move and threatened to move to Red Zone.

This incited State Minister Tariq Fazal Chaudhry to reach the venue and guarantee the protestors that he would organize their meeting with the prime minister.

Talking on this event, representatives of the APS casualties said that they were compelled to come to Islamabad after their requests were not heard by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa authorities.
