KP govt’s claim in PHC: APS was informed about possible militant attack before 2014

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government and police have claimed that they had informed the managements of all educational institutions, including that of the Army Public School and College in Peshawar, about the possible militant attacks after receiving the terror alert from the federal government in August 2014.

As many as 144 students and staff members were killed in the terrorist attack on the APS on December 16, 2014.

In their joint comments filed in the Peshawar High Court on a petition seeking to make public all information related to the APS massacre, the provincial home secretary and inspector general of police said during the terrorist attack, the police had performed its duty according to its capacity and available resources.

The officials said that in Peshawar alone there were 15 educational institutions run by the army, while in the entire province the number stood at 80.

They went on to explain the steps taken by the government in the wake of the carnage, including the security measures adopted regarding the security of the educational institutions and vulnerable and sensitive installations.

The petition is filed by lawyer Ajoon Khan, whose son Asfand Khan was also killed in the attack.

The petitioner requested the high court to direct the federal and provincial governments to make public all the information related to the carnage.
