The second terrorist, the statement highlighted, was identified as Muhammad Khan who was a “dedicated member of the group” and “proved to be more dangerous than Zubair”.

“Haroon, the martyred officer, is a national hero,” he said.

Former prime minister Shehbaz Sharif condemned the attack and paid tribute to the martyred officer.
