The funeral prayer of slain Awami National Party (ANP) leader Haroon Bilour has been offered on Wednesday in Peshawar amid the scenes of mourn and tears rolling on the cheeks of supporters.
Haroon Bilour was among 20 people martyred in a suicide attack which took place in Peshawar on Tuesday night in the Yakatoot neighbourhood moments after Bilaour arrived there to address a corner meeting.
Presently, 62 people injured in the suicide attack are seeking treatment at Lady Reading Hospital, authorities confirmed.
The deceased ANP leader was set to contest the July 25 elections from Peshawar’s PK-78 constituency.
The son of Bashir Ahmed Bilour, a senior ANP figure who, himself, was martyred in a suicide attack in 2012 after a party meeting, Haroon was rushed to the hospital in a critical condition but succumbed to his wounds shortly after.
