Deputy Speaker National Assembly Qasim Khan Suri, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis Zulfiqar Abbas Bukhari, Federal Minister, Ali Zaidi, Provincial Ministers and leaders of different political parties and a large number of people attended the funeral prayers. 

Prime Minister Imran Khan had earlier said that as soon Hazara community will bury their martyred community members, he will visit Quetta and meet them.
