Islamabad: As Peshawar buried the school children killed in the Taliban attack at an army school, more and more horror stories continues to send shock waves.

The entire class IX of the school has been wiped out except for one student – Dawood.

“There is no standard IX in APS now. All were killed in the #PeshawarAttack Dawood 15, only student to survive (SIC),” tweeted Hameed Ullah Shaheen Batazai, a Pakistan blogger and writer.

Dawood missed the school on the fateful day as he had reportedly attended a wedding the day before and could not get up on time.

His elder brother, Sufiyan Ibrahim, told The Express Tribune, that his brother is in a state of shock and is not talking at all.

The ghastly attack took place on Tuesday when six suicide bombers attacked army-run school in Peshawar killing over 130 children.

Even as the world continued to be shocked over the attack, Pakistan Taliban showed no remorse for their act.

A statement emailed by the spokesman of the banned Pakistani Taliban, Mohammad Khurasani, stated that it was a revenge attack as Pakistani agencies detained militants' relatives and killed them in staged encounters, according to a BBC news report.
