During the hearing conducted by a three-member bench, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmed asked the premier about the steps taken following the APS massacre. The PM told that at the time of attack, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was ruling Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and we held an emergency meeting to discuss this sad incident.

He said National Action Plan (NAP) was devised after the mishap, adding that he had warned the authorities to not interfere in United States war during Pervez Musharraf’s tenure. No one is above the law, he clarified.

You order, we will take action, the premier guaranteed the CJP.

Meanwhile, Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan said the parents of the martyred children are demanding action against the then rulers. The PM should meet the parents and hear their issues as their satisfaction is necessary, he added.

Subsequently, the court announced an adjournment and instructed the government to submit the Prime Minister’s court statement and progress report within four weeks.
