The traumatised families of the Army Public School attack victims over the escape of former TTP spokesperson Ehsanullah Ehsan, have approached Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmed on Thursday seeking answers for their questions.
In a letter to the honourable chief justice of Pakistan, they stressed on seven points seeking answers and relief.
“We, the families of Shahuda-e-APS, are under severe shock and completely traumatised after hearing of the news of release/ fleeing of the known terrorist and spokesperson of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) from the custody of army along with his family after spending about three years with them,” reads the letter.
“The “cruel terrorist” had already confessed to the attack that killed 147 students. We have a lot of questions and doubts in our mind which need to be addressed so as to console the agonised mothers who lost their loved ones and [are] now leading a completely shattered life.”
In the letter to the chief justice, they asked while recounting the tragic incident of APS school and recalling Ehsanullah’s surrender,
“What kind of agreement was made with the terrorist to keep him alive for three years despite his confessional statement for being involved in killing many students and staff of APS.”
The letter further questioned, that the “terrorist fled from the “well-guarded custody” or if he was conditionally released. “Why [was] he not tried in the court of law during these three years.”
They held Ehsanullah answerable as a spokesperson for the outlawed terrorist group and added that he was responsible for being a planner, financer and executor of the attack.
