Fourth death anniversary of martyr Aitzaz Hassan observed in Hangu


HAGNU: The fourth death anniversary of martyred Aitzaz Hassan, who sacrificed his life while preventing a suicide bomber from entering his school at Ibrahimzai Village of Hangu in 2014, has been observed in a simple way.

Mujahid Ali, the father of martyred Aitzaz Hassan while talking to media here Saturday said that his son was a hero to save the life of hundreds of school students but no one government official and political leader came to take participation in his anniversary.

Muhahid Ali said that he was invited different political leaders as well as government officials but none among them join us to pay homage to the teenage hero.

It is pertinent to mansion here that Aitzaz was standing outside his school when he saw a suspicious person, wearing suicide jackets and explosives, close in on the educational facility.

The 15-year old boy without caring for his life took hold of the terrorist and managed to divert the suicide bomber away from the school. The explosives went off in the scuffle, killing the terrorist and Aitzaz.

He was rewarded with Tamgha-e-Jurat for his courage and valour.
