PESHAWAR: The judicial commission investigating the 2014 terrorist attack on Army Public School (APS) has invited parents and public to come forward to record their statements about the deadly assault.

At least 150 people mostly students were killed when Taliban stormed the Army Public School in Peshawar on December 16, 2014.

The horrific attack caused a global outrage, forcing the then government to chalk out a national action plan (NAP) to combat terrorism and extremism.

Families of the martyrs called for a judicial inquiry into the carnage.

In March this year, Chief Justice Saqib Nisar directed Peshawar High Court to form a judicial commission to probe the attack

In an advertisement today, the judicial commission’s registrar has appealed to public, families of the martyrs, survivors and witnesses to come forward with their CNICs and record their statements about the terrorist attack.
