Army Public School attack: Wahab ud Din — Age 13

Updated Dec 15, 2015 09:39pm

Son of Rakshanda and Kabir ud Din

Siblings: Sana (23), Shahab ud Din (21)

For Wahab’s father, the loss of his youngest son was too much too bear. Two months after the horrific attack that took Wahab’s life, his father’s health took a turn for the worse. He passed away.

His mother says her son was a studious child who worked late into the night. She also says he was very sensitive to his parents needs. He was close to his father, and would often discuss with him his passion for science and research. He wanted to become a scientist. They talked at length about different countries of the world. He was curious about their cultures and customs. He would massage his father’s arms and legs after a long day’s work.

He loved cats. He took care of the stray cats that wandered around the neighbourhood, giving them milk and preparing special meals for them.

The family is shattered by this tragedy. They have also lost the sole bread earner, and life has become difficult. Wahab’s mother prays for better days.
