Kolkata: Crying "shame" over the dastardly killing of school children by terrorists in Pakistan`s Peshawar city, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Wednesday said it was an "irreparable loss to the world family".
"Every child is like a bud that blossoms into a beautiful flower. The heinous killing of so many children is an irreparable loss to the world family, as children are the future of nations," Banerjee wrote on her official Facebook page.
Describing the incident as "shocking", the chief minister said: "I have no words to express my deep sorrow and anguish. I strongly condemn the terrible act of terrorism. Shame! Shame! Shame."
Tuesday`s terror attack at the Army Public School in Peshawar killed as many as 148 people, including 132 children, and left the country numb with deep shock and grief.
