Imran Ali’s family could not be contacted for this obituary.
Imran’s teacher Miss Andaleep Aftab says he came from a very modest home in Kurram Agency. He lived away from his family, at a local hostel in Peshawar. His mother was a tailor and bore all his educational expenses.
His teacher says that if he were alive, he would have pursued his dream to be a doctor, and would have made an excellent one.
She also says he was eager to polish his English. Each morning, he would reach school early with a list of difficult words he wanted to know the meanings of.
He was an only child.
