The attendees of funeral prayer were chanting slogan, “We are present Yah Hussain” as the ambulances brought the dead bodies in Liaquat Bagh. The relatives and families of the victims burst into tears.

Earlier, Allama Raja Nasir Abbas, while addressing the gathering, vehemently denounced the killings of three men in an armed attack launched by two unknown attackers. “The government has failed in protecting the lives and properties of the masses and this can be judged from the fact that two terrorists targeted these three innocent in Sadiqabad,” he said, adding that where the PM and CM have gone and why they were not taking interest in the affairs of the state.

He said that the government was adopting friendly policy towards the terrorists but attack on a school in Peshawar pulled out the rulers from slumber. He demanded of the government to arrest the attackers immediately. Police beefed up security under the supervision of SP Rawal Division Karamat Ullah Malik in and outside Liaquat Bagh by blocking all the roads leading to funeral prayer venue.
