PESHAWAR  - A student of Army Public School (APS) Peshawar succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday, two years after the 2014 massacre. At least 150 people mostly students and staff members were killed when Taliban gunmen disguised as soldiers attacked the military-run school in Peshawar on December 16, 2014.

The deadly attack shocked the entire nation, prompting the government to launch a National Action Plan (NAP) to root out the scourge of terrorism and extremism once and for all. Irshad Hussain, who was among the injured students, died on Tuesday after being under treatment in a Rawalpindi hospital for two years. The deceased had been shot in the neck and back, leading to critical injuries.
