PESHAWAR: 

After funeral prayers outside CM House on Wednesday, Chief Minister Pervez Khattak said, “No religion or civilization is allowed to massacre such budding human flowers.”

He added, “God knows what beasts these terrorists were and who trained and sent them for such a devilish, heinous crime that shattered…everyone.”

Going over the details of the compensation, Khattak said, “However, the government [knows] there is no way to compensate for the precious lives lost or for the grief of shocked families.”

The national and provincial leadership will now never keep silent on acts of terrorism, said the CM.

Solid steps will be taken to satisfy people, he added. For now, he said, the police and hospitals will be on full alert. “A full consensus will be evolved on national strategies on security and terrorism as well as the K-P government’s next action on security and law and order”. He announced national flag will fly at half-mast for three days and the educational institutions will remain closed in the province.

    Everybody knows where do these terrorist are coming from and who is supporting them.If there is a civil crime police starts investigation based on suspicion no matter how remote that might be and finally reach to culprits.There is an open support and visible terror infrastructure for terrorists in this country still such leader are asking who these terrorist are.Do these short sighted people need to govern this country.Shame is a small word.

    A bit late.. Were you not for dialogue with these monsters, and until now I have not heard your party name TTP as the inhuman culprits. No room for double games any more. KPK has paid too high a price in lives, precious lives each one of them not only on the 16th December, but all those that preceded in so many mindless bombings.Recommend
