ISLAMABAD: President Mamnoon Hussain has decided to confer Tamgha-i-Shujaat on 145 students and staff members of the Army Public School in Peshawar who were killed in a terrorist attack on Dec 16. At least 132 students were among those killed.

An official said a meeting chaired by the president had decided that the civil award would be conferred on the principal, teachers, other staffers and students of the school who were killed by the terrorists. A civilian who died in the attack would also be given the award. Those who were injured would also be given some awards.

Tamgha-i-Shujaat would also be conferred on a policeman killed while intercepting a suicide bomber at the gate of the Peshawar Press Club in December 2009.

The presidency will prepare a summary which will be sent to the cabinet division.
