ISLAMABAD: The report of judicial inquiry commission on Army Public School (APS) attack has been made public today (Friday) on the orders of Supreme Court (SC).
The apex court conducted suo motu hearing of the APS incident. Parents of the martyred children appeared before the court and maintained that only the accountability of higher officials will fix the system.

The attorney general submitted reply in the court over the inquiry commission report and said every possible action against the responsible persons is being taken.
Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Gulzar Ahmed ordered to initiate the action from top officials so that such incidents could be avoided in future.
