Army Public School attack: Ahmad Elahi – Age 15

Updated Dec 15, 2015 09:37pm

Son of Mehfooz Elahi and Sumeer Sadiqi

Siblings: Faseeha Elahi (17) and Mohammad Elahi (13)

Ahmad was a position holder and an aspiring surgeon. His mother says he was very religious and offered all his prayers at the mosque. In fact, he would try to reach the mosque early so that he could recite the Azan.

He liked to play cricket with his friends but more than anything else, he loved his parrots. Just a few days before the attack he had bought a brand new cage for them.

His parents tell us they will never forget that very night, before going to sleep, he would crawl into his mother’s bed and make sure he hadn’t said or done anything to hurt her. “If I did, I apologise for it,” he would say to her.
