Army Public School attack: Muhammad Furqan Haider - Age: 14 years

Updated Dec 15, 2015 09:46pm

Son of Farhad Ali Bangash and Mrs Raheela Khatoon

Siblings: Nargis Batool age 13 years student, Fatma Batool age 10 years student, Mohammad Zulqarnain Haider age 8 years student.

He resided with his family in UAE but a year before his tragic demise, Fazal took admission at APS to fulfill his ambition of joining the Pakistan Army.

He lived in Peshawar with his uncle, whose eyes fill with tears as he remembers his nephew.

Even if somebody spoke to him harshly, he would never lose his patience or smile, his uncle says. "He was a good, reticent boy."

Furqan was fond of babies and often took care of his younger siblings and cousins. He also had a liking for baby chicks and would often bring them home.

He enjoyed watching and playing cricket, and made it a point to watch all matches played by the Pakistan cricket team. If there was a power breakdown, he would go to his neighbour's house, which had a generator, to watch the match but would not miss it at any cost.
