PM vows to implement NAP with ‘full force’ following Peshawar carnage

Following the suicide attack in Peshawar, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said he would ensure that “the National Action Plan (NAP) is implemented in full force” and with comprehensiveness.

PM Sharif visited the Lady Reading Hospital (LRH) Monday evening to inquire about the injured in the deadly blast that took place at Malik Saad Shaheed mosque in Police Lines during Zuhr prayer. The deadly attack also claimed at least 59 lives.

The premier was received by Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir and then took rounds of different wards and met the injured.

PM Shehbaz directed the hospital administration to provide the best medical facilities to all the injured.

He was accompanied by Defence Minister Khawaja Asif, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan and Information and Broadcasting Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb.

A representative of the Lady Reading Hospital, where 157 injured people were brought after the attack, said the death toll in the explosion has reached 59.

In Peshawar, the Corps Commander Peshawar briefed the PM on the factors and motivations behind the rise in terrorism in Peshawar.

The premier was shown the CCTV footage of the suicide attack, and the IG Police also presented the preliminary investigation report on it.

“Terrorists are making a sinister attempt to create fear and terror by attacking defence agencies,” the premier said, adding, “They will be defeated by the strength of the unity of the state and the people.”
