ISLAMABAD: The government on Thursday requested the Supreme Court (SC) to grant three more weeks to file a report on the Army Public School (APS) tragedy.
The government through the attorney general of Pakistan (AGP) moved an application in the apex court demanding that three more weeks be granted to submit the report bearing Prime Minister Imran Khan’s signature in pursuance of the top court’s directives.
The application stated that a committee constituted by the prime minister has met with the bereaved families and is expected to meet them again soon to address their concerns, pleading with the top court to give more time for compliance of its order.
It is noteworthy that the SC had last month approved the government’s plea seeking three weeks’ time to submit the report.
Earlier, the SC ordered that a report with the prime minister’s signature be submitted within four weeks. The court’s deadline for submission of the report is Dec 10.
On Dec 16, 2014, six terrorists had stormed the Army Public School (APS) in Peshawar and martyred around 150 students and teachers. After this tragic incident, the government chalked out the National Action Plan (NAP) to eliminate terrorism from the country.
