PESHAWAR, 8 December: The parents of the martyred students of Army Public School (APS) Peshawar have warned of boycotting all the memorial ceremonies on the first anniversary of the tragedy on 16 December if a judicial commission was not formed to probe the incident.

The representatives of Shohada Foundation, a forum of 43 victim families of the 16 December, 2014 massacre, said at a press conference at Peshawar Press Club on Monday that they will also return all the gallantry awards and monetary assistance if their demand was not fulfilled.

President of Shohada Foundation, Fazal Khan said the APS attack was a big conspiracy and the parents of martyred students were not satisfied with the government’s role in this regard. He alleged that the government received millions of dollars aid from foreign countries after the APS attack but shared no details with the people.

Mr Fazal said the incident didn’t occur in a small town or a remote area in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He said the incident happened in a highly secured area in Peshawar and the parents want an independent investigation into the incident. He demanded the Supreme Court of Pakistan to take suo moto notice of the APS tragedy.
