APS student fighting for life, dies

PESHAWAR: Irshad Hussain, a student of Army Public School has succumbed to his wounds on Tuesday, three days before Pakistan marks the second anniversary of the 2014 massacre at Army Public School (APS) Peshawar.

Around 150 people were killed, most of them were students and staff members of the school, when Taliban gunmen disguised as Pakistan’s Army soldier attacked military-run school in Peshawar on December 16, 2014.

The merciless attack traumatized the entire Pakistani nation, prompting the government to launch a national action plan (NAP) to root out the terrorism and extremism from the soil of the country.

The incident is considered as turning point in Pakistan’s long war against terrorism.

Irshad Hussain, who have been fighting for almost two year for his life who was among the injured students, gave up to his wounds on Tuesday after being under treatment in a Rawalpindi hospital for two years.

Irshad had been shot in neck and back, leading to critical injuries.

According to family, Irshad Hussain was severely traumatized caused by the attack.
