PESHAWAR, 22 June: Most of the students who sustained injuries in a terrorist attack on the Army Public School and College in Peshawar last year are still waiting for proper treatment.
Twenty-one injured students and their parents are present in Lahore for the last five days. Several surgeries have been performed on seven injured students and they require further surgeries. However, no proper treatment has been provided to these injured students in Lahore so far.
The parents of the injured students said at a press conference in Lahore yesterday that the federal, provincial governments and the army chief had assured full treatment facilities for the injured students of the Army Public School. However, they said, they are still waiting for proper treatment facilities.
The Shohada and Ghazi Forum Peshawar Coordinator Qaiser Ali said the Punjab government has provided the facility of residence to the injured students. However, he said, the Health Department has not provided any assistance to them so far.
At least 140 students were killed and several others injured in a terrorist attack on the Army Public School and College in Peshawar on 16 December, 2014. Most of the injured students are still under treatment.
