President of APS Martyrs Forum Fazal Khan Advocate narrowly escaped an assassination attempt in Peshawar on Tuesday.

Unknown motorcyclists shot at the lawyer’s vehicle in the provincial capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, but he remained unharmed.

Fazal has been at the forefront of the movement for justice for the victims of the Army Public School attack that led to the death of over 140 people, mostly children. He had also lost a son in the attack.

Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) lawmaker Mohsin Dawar denounced the attack and urged the government to arrest the suspects.

“Strongly condemn the attack on @FazalKhanAdvt . Our friends and colleagues continue to be threatened and attacked. We stand with Fazal Advocate. Thankfully he is safe and fine. We demand for the culprits to be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” MNA Dawar said in a tweet.

The attack was also condemned by the father of Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai. In a tweet, Ziauddin Youafzai said that Fazal had already lost a son in the 2014 attack.
