APS Victims’ Parents Write To CJ Gulzar Demanding Answers Over Ehsasnullah Ehsan’s Escape
Families of students who were killed in the Army Public School (APS) attack have approached Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed against the alleged escape of former Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan.
Dawn News reported that the families of 15 slain students said: “We the families of Shuhada-e-APS are under severe shock and completely traumatised after hearing of the said news of release/fleeing of the known terrorist and spokesperson of TTP from the custody of the army along with his family after spending three years with them. The cruel terrorist has already confessed [to] the gruesome attack on [APS], killing 147 students and staff and many more terrorist incidents in the country.”
The parents of the APS victims also questioned as to how the Ehsanullah Ehsan was able to leave the country. “How could he flee from custody or whether he is released with some conditions,” the application stated.
The application also asked was to what kind of agreement was made with him to keep him alive for three years “despite his confessional statement for being involved in many killings of students and staff of APS.”
