Imran Khan said he is still shocked at seeing the traumatized children who saw their parents shot before their eyes. He said these children will now be fully looked after by the state as its responsibility.

“Still shocked at seeing the traumatized children who saw their parents shot before their eyes. Any parent would be shocked as they would think of their own children in such a traumatic situation. These children will now be fully looked after by the state as its responsibility, the premier tweeted.

In another tweet, Imran Khan said, “While the CTD has done a great job in fight against terrorism, everyone must be accountable before the law. As soon as JIT report comes, swift action will be taken. The govt’s priority is protection of all its citizens.”
