Fazal Khan said that the news of escape has created a sense of deprivation among the APS victims.
He further said that the government’s silence over the matter has raised questions.

While addressing the protesters, he said that the grieving parents have been struggling for justice but the government has refused to pay heed to their demands.
Parents of martyrs said that news of Ehsan’s escape had reopened their wounds of losing their children to terrorists. The demonstrators were also carrying banners, inscribed with slogans calling for justice.

Last week, Advocate Khan had filed a petition in the Peshawar High Court. He sought contempt of court proceedings against multiple government officials following reports of the militant’s escape.
