ISLAMABAD: On Friday, the Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered the formation of a commission to probe the 2014 Army Public School attack tragedy.
Headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, a three member bench heard the suo motu case of the APS attack.
The bench directed that the commission will be headed by a senior judge of the high court and will submit its report to the top court within six weeks.
Further, the chief justice ordered that the commission along with investigating the attack, should meet the victims’ relatives and address their concerns.
On December 16, 2014, terrorists stormed the army-run school and killed around 150 people, including more than 130 students, in one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in Pakistan’s history.
