Supreme court fixes hearing of APS attack case
ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Friday fixed the date for the hearing of the suo motu notice on the Army Public School attack.

A three-judge bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar will hear the case on October 5 for which notices have been sent to the attorney general and advocate general of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa among others.

Justice Nisar had taken suo motu notice of the case during a trip to Peshawar earlier this year when the families of the APS attack victims approached the top judge and asked for a judicial inquiry into the matter.

In May, the chief justice had ordered the formation of a judicial commission on the APS tragedy that sent shock waves across the country.

On December 16, 2014, terrorists stormed the army-run school and killed around 145 people, including more than 130 young students.

The incident sent shock waves across the country and resulted in the formation of a National Action Plan to weed out extremism and terrorism from the country, as well as the creation of military courts to try ‘hardcore’ terrorists.
